Excellent plugin!

However, there is not enough setting for rounding the corners of the thumbnails. I had to add it with css.

Thumbnails don't show up

Thumbnails don't show up after the latest WordPress update (6.1.1)

Works well with Astra theme

By arifktk on September 8, 2022

I needed to implement my Figma design that used a recent posts widget with thumbnails, titles, and dates. But the WordPress default recent posts widget shows only the titles. Also, I checked the Astra theme options for these extended features but couldn't find them. Then I found this plugin which gave me all the features that I needed. Thank you, author

No intro text, no title

Theme: Divi No intro text No Title both enabled in backend.

Good plugin, also with Polylang

By ws24 on July 27, 2022

The general problem with Polylang for all widgets is that it doesn’t work with the new ‘widgets block editor’ in WP. This can be solved by installing the ‘Classic Widgets’ plugin, after this you can perfectly use this plugin too.

This plugin is not working with Polylang from WP SYNTEX

By Bouke Lourens (dewebdeveloper) on February 28, 2022

A very useful plugin! Been using it for a long time too! However, I noticed that it only works on 1 translation, the main page. On the other translation, this plugin doesn't seem to work. I use Polylang from WP SYNTEX

Great plugin

By dimal (dimalifragis) on February 10, 2022

I only review plugins and themes i use (or used). This is a great plugin, does exactly what it says. No issues (apart from some flood of php undefined index notices that must be fixed).

So simple but so powerful, a fabulous widget!

By robgrant on November 23, 2021

Installs perfectly, gives you all the control you could need or want from a news widget and performs perfectly. If only all widgets could be built this way. Fantastic job, well done!
