Dropdown is an unordered tragic mess
By , for WP 4.1.1

This seems like it would be perfect except that when you run a large site with tons of categories the dropdown needs to display the hierarchy of the Categories and SubCategories. Ideally it would be nice to just have a Select Multiple to choose what categories and that would avoid the entire issue specifying excluded categories as well?

Fantastic

Fantastic, I use this for custom post types.

Shows same post everywhere?
By , for WP 3.8

I can't find the Exclude Previously Displayed Post checkbox.

I use this widget several times on the same page and I have the same posts showing everywhere.

I wanted to use this plugin because I want to show posts from all categories except one on my home page without having to create custom post types. I also would like to display random posts in my footer but now it shows already displayed posts.

EDIT: I decided to increase my rating because this plugin is great except that Exclude Previously Displayed Post checkbox that I really need. It's strange for me to have a plugin that lets you chose random posts but doesn't check if the post is already displayed.

Just awesome! You have to use it :)

One of the most awesome and useful Genesis plugins out there! It really does an incredible job in extending the (already awesome) default "Genesis Featured Posts" widget in the right direction.

If you need to work with custom post types, and/or need even more flexibility with your featured widgets then this plugin is a must for you!

The developer did an awesome job in delivering this handy solution. Highly recommended, as I use it in various projects - working like a charm!
