Very useful plugin, love it!

Not suitable for pages or posts

By theofontane on February 4, 2023

I just wanted to have a plugin that allows me to show all posts of a certain category. This plugin works only on WP-Template level, so it is not possible to use it on different pages or posts. Additionally the categories are not sorted in the "filter" dialogue. I have over 100 categories - this is not user friendly.

Great support

Great plugin. Just what I needed and easy to use. The developer answered promptly on a Saturday when I mailed a question.

Just What I needed

By donfink on August 3, 2021

I've only worked with this widget/plugin for a few minutes, but it's exactly what I needed. I was looking for something to display a list of additional posts in the sidebar of pages that display specific categories. I didn't know that I wanted the thumbnail to appear too. Certainly, if I had to write my own short code, I wouldn't have included it. But since it's here in this wqidget, I put it in and it's perfect.

People need a simple plug-in like this.

Some of the best support team out there

They have to have some of the best support teams out there. Highly recommend it, especially if you need a trustworthy plugin for business.

Awesome support

By kingbolo on August 7, 2019

Support helped me out on a problem with social sharing. At first it seemed that it was caused by category posts widget. But after some testing it was something else. The support helped me in pointing out the probable cause what had nothing to do with the category posts widget plugin. It was an entirely diffrent issue. So they helped me solve the issue even when it was not their plugin causing this. So Awesome support.
