Advanced Most Recent Posts

by Yakup GVLER

Overview


Advanced Most Recent Posts Widget displays your recent posts with thumbnail images (optional). It gets posts from selected categories or current category or all categories. When your visitors are at home, it gets posts from all posts or selected category. If you set ‘Get posts from current category’, when visitors see single post, widget lists posts in the same category of single post or when visitors click a category link, it gets posts from current category.

Notice: This widget requires at least 2.8.

You know that

Thumbnail Custom Field Name

If you want to display the thumbnail of your posts via a custom field, write its name.

Height – Width

Images size.

Get first image of post

If you don’t want to use custom field, plugin will get first image from your post content.

Get first attached image of post

Plugin gets first attached image of post.

Default image

If post has no image, plugin display this image. Ex: http://www.yakupgovler.com/default-image.png

Notice: If you use three options, plugin uses custom field image firstly. If the post has no custom field, it gets first image from content. At last it gets first attached image. I suggest not to use “Get first image of post” for performance. It queries much more.

Categories

Plugin gets posts in these categories. (Category IDs, separated by commas.)

Get posts from current category:

Posts will be get from current category (single post’s category or current category).
