Recent Posts Widget With Thumbnails

The plugin is available in English, German (Deutsch), Persian (فارسی), Arabic (العربÙ? Ø©), Polish (Polski) Russian (русский), Turkish (Türkçe) and Japanese (日本語). Lightweight, simple and effective No huge widget with hundreds of options. This plugin is based on the well-known WordPress default widget ‘Recent Posts’ and extended to display more informations about the posts like e.g. thumbnails, excerpts and assigned categories. The thumbnails will be built from the featured image of a post or of the first image in the post content. If there is neither a featured image nor a content image then you can define a default thumbnail. You can set the width and heigth of the thumbnails in the list. The thumbnails appear left-aligned to the post titles in left-to-right languages. In right-to-left languages they appear right-aligned.
