Ever had trouble finding the right widget to display what you want? This happens to me a lot.
Earlier today I was looking for a recent posts widget for a restaurant menu that would let me:
- Show only one post from a particular category
- Let me hide the post title
- Show the complete content of the post
- Show the date with PHP formatting
- Retain the CSS formatting of the post
I tried four plugins before I found Justin Tadlock’s amazing Query Posts plugin. It does all of those things and much more, with around 40 options. It’s like the Swiss army knife of recent post widgets.
