Totally crap support. Choose another vendor
By , for WP 4.3.1

The plugin sort of works. Lots of nice features and very flexible. But support is totally non existent even for the pro version.

We'll be looking for an alternate from a vendor who appreciates customers who pay for a pro version and provides support.

Especially noted that the developer states "support is optional", ie, give me your money and I'll ignore you thereafter.

Beautiful Presentation

I love this plugin. I've used it in footer widgets and on pages. It's a superb way to show recent posts or upcoming events.

Excelente pluging

Nice, but lacks Author
By , for WP 4.2.1

Nice plugin. I don't give a 5 star because there is no way to show Author name.

Awesome and free too!

This is a really great plugin. The only problem was that it took a long time to find it. I hope this review helps others find it easier! It has great inline documentation which is awesome and flexible for showing post content in a page. I just deleted contentviews plugin after finding this plugin. Works well with site builder plugin to put the widget on a page.
I do wish I could put a button for clicking, but that would be complex for colors. I am very happy with it.

Great plugin

Have been using this on our Church website and like the way it displays the recent posts. My only reservation with it was the inability to find the shortcode options that worked.

I was longing for such a professional work so long.
Actually it is not my biggest dream fulfilled, because in the content area it just works via shortcodes. A button in the editor that opens the same menu as the widget offers would be the creme de la creme de la creme, being downloaded 1.000.000 times in few weeks ;))
Just a motivation to maybe see that dream come true, maybe it is not so difficult to implement such a button as similar plugins do, a button that opens the dialog, just that after pressing OK it translate the options into the shortcode. Or maybe this dream is already true in the PRO version? In this case I will be the next to buy one.

Yet I have a little problem with the single quotes in the shortcode, but I am sure this will be solved soon, I posted in the forum, looking forward for reply.

Thanks for this wonderful professional work

Works well, lots of options

The old "featured post" plugin from another developer was no longer working so I installed this "Special Recent Posts" here, and it works fine. You can set it to certain post ID's or Category filter, all there. Thumbnail size too. Thanks for your good work!

Nice plugin, easy to use
