Amazing plugin, but don't work with this version
This plugin works for what it says it does but I couldn't get it to style differently in any way whatsoever.
I needed the title under the thumbnail and the plugin author seemed to have no idea how to do this. I tried every which way imaginable by readings forums and the plugin support, including altering css and function.php files but to no avail. You'd think a plugin author would know how to do something as simple as this.
I contacted the plugin author to get some advice and I waited...and waited. Until I decided to go with another plugin (Display Posts Shortcode and Posts in Sidebar) which work fantastically for me. Support is slow. I know the authors are in no way required to provide support - but if I had gotten good support, I would've made a donation to the plugin just like I have for the ones that I'm now using.
Shame I tried for so long before moving on to something else.
I use this to keep a large content website organized with related topics. Very helpful!
With only a simple bit of shortcode I was able to quickly set up a static page that displayed the full relevant posts in order. It worked brilliantly.
My only possible criticism was that post titles in this format were outputted without their own CSS tag. Assuming all themes use the '.entry-title' class for post titles, I'd suggest adding that in.
I was able to eventually work out which code was outputting the title however, and added in the appropriate CSS tags. Now it works perfectly.
Did exactly what I needed and Sudar was very helpful and quick to respond when I needed help!
More than I was expecting. Multiply tags, lot option,thumb, exclude post ..
Easy to use, lots of options.
