Great, except ...
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin is great, except for one thing. It has lots of options, lots of flexibility, the filters are brilliant ... but ... frustratingly, it doesn't have the option to exclude the current post from the widget. So when I choose to show posts from the same category as the current post, one of the recommended posts listed is always the current post they're reading.

So if I'm reading an article titled "ABC". The widget says, "You might also like to read ABC". Which looks really silly.

Thank you

I've been working on a redesign of my own site and decided early on to spin up my own testimonials functionality using a CPT and ACF.

I'm nearing completion of the project (yay!) and, this morning, remembered that I wanted to display random testimonials in the sidebar. So, I ask myself, how to go about displaying a couple of random custom post type with it's associated fields, in my sidebar, using a widget.

I assumed I was going to be spending this afternoon learning how to make this happen - and while I certainly don't have anything against learning, right now I just needed to get this done quickly.

Using this plugin and a custom template I was able to complete this task in under 30 minutes, which included making a custom template and styling the output.

The custom templates are super handy as well, as I was able to make my own template, grab the bits that I needed, and wrap them in block quote structure with hooks for my own CSS.

This plugin saved me a lot of time today, which I can now use to get other things done - and now I have the plugins codebase to reference when I'm ready to go back and see how this is done.

Thanks a ton for this amazingly useful plugin, you really made my day. :)

Great plugin, great support

Works just like it says it does. Well worth getting the pro upgrade.

Just what I needed

Works great, easy to configure. I was looking for a plugin that would support custom post types and advanced custom fields and this does both. I also love that you can create your own templates, which I will be giving a try. Thank you for this plugin!

Yes!

This is great. Plenty of options but still super-easy to use.
And it had a few more obvious options than some other similar plugins. The one I needed specifically - showing the full content of a post instead of an excerpt or stripping out HTML & embeds.

Thanks!

Works great

Highly configurable and customizable.

Works perfect.

The option to create your own theme, although not tested, sounds like a great feature.
