Great for non-blog site

I'm building a magazine typed website and really needs a fully customized sidebar. This plugin helped me to do that.

If possible I'd love to have one more option to set column for widget such as 1 column, 2 columns.

Great plugin

Only Plugin that Will Only Show Post from Current Page Category
By , for WP 4.3.1

I can't speak highly enough of this plugin. It's the only one I could find that will look at the category or tag on a page and only show posts from the same categories/tags as the page. This is a great feature for larger sites when you don't want to show irrelevant content in a sidebar.

Great Stuff

does what it claims to do, and it does so well. I couldn't imagine to maintain a WP site without it.
Thanks for sharing it!

Cheers and best regards!

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. :)
