Here’s a useful widget that lets you display content for different post types such as Pages, Posts and your own custom post types on your sidebar. Features include:
- Options to order by Post Title, Date and Menu Order
- Inclusion of Featured Image
- Customize number of posts displayed
- Specify number of characters for post excerpt
You can see the demo on the sidebar where I feature my latest projects.
