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!

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.


Works great

Highly configurable and customizable.

Works perfect.

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

Stories categorized and URL's renamed
By , for WP 3.9.1


We've renamed some of the pages that we categorized into the widget and now they are showing up as links with a line crossed through them. Is there an easy way to reset this plugin to detect the revised links?

Stellar! clean, well-spaced, results and lots o' cool stuff

Get this plugin! I just replaced a plugin I had long used with this. Ultimate Posts Widget is simple to use with lots of options. Great looking results.

I immediately chose it over the other plugin because of the resulting view: the posts have space between them - love the horizontal divider, the image and text line up perfectly/legibly, and important...there is space between it and the other widgets. Adding a URL and text/html blocks before and after helps to make this a stellar plugin.

Thank you for Random Posts - surprisingly tricky to find.

I forgot - the features are well chosen. A set of very useful features that are easily found/understood/set. It can be super simple or not.

Thank you for a great plugin.
