IMPORTANT: Support has moved to the ZATZLabs site and is no longer provided on the WordPress.org forums. If you need a timely reply from the developer, please open a ticket. If you’ve ever wanted to display recent posts, but go far beyond the Recent Posts widget that comes with WordPress, you’re in the right place. One of the very best ways to increase time-on-site (and therefore the engagement of your audience) is helping visitors discover new and wonderful pages and posts on your site. Better Recent Posts Widget can do that by displaying your beautiful featured images right in the widget. You can control the number of posts to display, specify if you want to skip some posts, and display custom post types. Features The WordPress.org version has the following features: All new, better Recent Posts widget Specify widget title Control number of posts displayed Control number of posts to skip (offset) Optionally display post thumbnails Customize thumbnail size Choose post type to display Additional features in the pro version: Optionally display post author Optionally display post count Optionally display post comment count Optionally display post excerpt/length Customize post display order Customize post sorting method Better taxonomy selection control Multiple widget instance support Multisite capable Adoption Notice This plugin was recently adopted by David Gewirtz and ongoing support and updates...
