It does what it says, simple and easy.

Great work.

Love this plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

One of the best plugin for sidebar to display recent posts with a lot of customization.
Thanks for the hard work!

This one is great, I use it on almost every site. One thing I'd love to see in the next update is a way to limit date ranges for most commented articles. When sorting by comment count it shows the most commented articles ever, regardless of age. This can be a problem when you want to show newer and more relative content initially.

A go to plugin

This is a fab plugin that works out of the box and is easy to configure. It's on my list of standard plugins to use when creating new wordpress sites.

Nice widget, but little problem

Nice plugin!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Highly recommend it! It works out of the box and very easy to configure. Does everything it says, but the thumbnail size issue needs to be addressed as soon as possible.

Keep up the good work!

This plugin was very good...
By , for WP 3.9

Simple and good plugin.
It has a lot of useful options but lacks 2 more since the 0.9.1 version:

  • the choice between get_the_excerpt() and get_the_content()
  • for the excerpt lenght, the choise between a number of words (like now) and a number of characters (like before)

So, I would prefer another plugin...

This is great, works well, nice features...

This is great, works well, some nice features... And the support seems to be quite good...
