This plugin is exactly what I was looking for. I was showing three recent news in my homepage and I had to edit the html manually each time I wanted to change them. With this plugin it's just a matter of setting a category in the posts I want to show.

It was easy to customize through CSS. However, I had to edit the plugin's code to remove one thing: the "h3" tag added to the rpwe titles. I had to do it because in Firefox the titles were not vertically aligned to the top. Apart from that, great great plugin. Kudos to the developer.

Easy to use, a lot of features

Works nice and easy. The widget has a lot of features and customizations.

Very happy with Recent Posts Widget Extended
By , for WP 4.1.1

My usual favorite kind of plugin: does one thing and does it well. Good documentation, can customise with parameters and css. We are calling it from home page with do_shortcode, all is happy.

We were kind of in a hurry for this last addition to a site about to roll out; researched quickly and really lucked out that we jumped on this one :) thanks!

Awesome Plugin-How About Updates?
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is my favourite posts-in-widget plugin and I use it on all my sites... but I notice it hasn't been updated for a while.
It still works great even though I'm using WP 4.1.1, but how about updates to this plugin to be sure it's safe to use with the latest of WP?

This plugin does one thing, and it does it really well. Intuitive, easy and it works!

Works with 4.1 AND my premium theme!
By , for WP 4.1

My premium WP theme's built-in recent post widget doesn't provide offsetting. It can get very cranky when I introduce it to outside plugins, so I thought I was stuck. I finally decided to take a chance, even though your plugin hasn't been "cleared" for WP 4.1 as of yet.

I had to do a little math to figure out exactly how many posts to skip. But it works fine with WP 4.1, looks great thanks to the customizeable CSS, and best of all, it gets along with my premium WP theme!
