Plugin Update: Custom Recent Posts Widget – 2.0

I’ve updated one of my WordPress plugins, “Custom Recent Posts Widget”. You can download the latest version from official wordpress plugin repository.

What’s new in this version?

In version 2.0, I’ve added another widget called Custom Recent Posts by Tags which lets you show recent posts based on tags. It is helpful if you are mainly using tags to categorize your posts. You can select a single tag or multiple tags to show recent posts list.

In this version I’ve renamed plugin classname to widget_recent_entries which is same as the default wordpress recent posts widget. So, this inherits the style of WordPress Recent Posts Widget. However you can style it using Custom CSS. Use .crpw-item and .crpw-tag-item CSS class to style Custom Recent Posts Widget and Custom Recent Posts by Tags Widget respectively.


.crpw-item { 
font-weight: bold; 
font-size: 14px; 
list-style: disc inside; 

Please leave your comments if you have any issues using this plugin.
