Horizontal display

I would like to suggest another parameter in widget setting to set the orientation for display whether the users want to show the list in vertical or horizontal.

Very good Widget plugin, but needed some tweaks
By , for WP 3.5.2

This is a full-featured replacement for the bundled WordPress 'latest posts' widget. Unfortunately, this plugin doesn't have the line separators that the WordPress widget makes (which it should), so I tweaked some code to fix that:

<div class="scpcontainer<?php echo $lastcont; ?>">
          $scporder = array();
          $feat_image = '';
          $feat_image = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID) );
          $pluginurl = site_url('/wp-content/plugins/simple-seo-categories-posts/timthumb.php');
          if ($displthumb == 'displthumb' && $feat_image != '') { // get thumb
          $scporder[$thumborder] = '
          <div class="scpthumb">
            <a href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) .'" title="'. get_the_title($post->ID) .'">
            <img src="'. $pluginurl .'?src='. $feat_image .'&w='. $thumbwidth .'&h='. $thumbheight .'&zc='. $thumbcrop .'" width="'. $thumbwidth .'" height="'. $thumbheight .'" title="'. get_the_title($post->ID) .'" alt="'. get_the_title($post->ID) .'" />
          if ($disptitle == 'disptitle') { // get title
            $scporder[$titleorder] = '
			<div class="scptitle">
              <a href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) .'" title="'. get_the_title($post->ID) .'">'. get_the_title($post->ID) .'</a>
          if ($dispdate == 'dispdate') { // get date
            $scporder[$dateorder] = '<div class="scpdate">'. get_the_date() .'</div>
          if ($dispauthor == 'dispauthor') { // get date
            $scporder[$authororder] = '<div class="scpauthor">'. $beforeauthor .get_the_author_link() .'</div>
          if ($exclength > 0 && $displexc == 'displexc') { // get excerpt
            $scporder[$excorder] = '<div class="scptext">'. scpexcerpt($exclength) .'</div>';
          if ($exclength == 0 && $displexc == 'displexc') {
            $scporder[$excorder] = '<div class="scptext">'. get_the_excerpt() .'</div>';
          foreach ($scporder as $scpkey => $scpoutput) {
            echo $scpoutput;
What a great plugin!

Great plugin! This is the only plugin that Ive found that does the job perfectly. Wide range of options... just what Ive been looking for. Hope you will continue supporting it!

Thank you!

nice plugin with many features but basic HTML structure is missing (all in <div>s)
