Creates a widget that displays posts and thumbnails in a selected category. Thumbnails will display 100px square. Author name links to author page (if in use) or list of posts. Posts are sorted in descending order by date. This is a fork of James Lao’s Category Posts plugin, with less options.
Style « thumbcol » and « contentcol » classes to make it look pretty (make the thumb appear to the left of the excerpt, for example).
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Drag Featured Categories widget to desired widgetized area
- Enter title, select category, and set desired options for number of posts and excerpt length
How do I make the widget show more or less information, like post date?
This plugin is designed to have very few options; for more options, try James Lao’s Category Posts plugin.
