Sure, WordPress has a widget for displaying your most recent posts, but what if you want to only display the posts from a single category in a widget, and not everything? This plugin Widget lets you set the title, category, and quantity of posts to display, then it kicks out a list of the most recent posts in that category.


WordPress doesn’t let you do this? Really?

Nope. Really.

*** PLUGIN NOT UPDATED (see below) ***

Useful if your theme does not have their own widget for displaying single category posts as a widget. If you only want to display a list of posts in that same category then combine with Display Widgets plugin, to control where to show.

Alternative plugin: Category Posts Widget
