Detail Plugin Description

WP Category Posts List is a WordPress Widget & Shortcode plugin to show your posts filtered by category.

Built on the latest WP widget class, it has multiple widget instance support. Also you can modify the HTML structure of the widget in what ever manner you want.

Every thing is made simple from the widget options. It supports post thumbnails which would fetch thumbnails you have added from the wp editor. You can also set the CSS class, alternate list css style and much more. Also, you have complete control over the sorting method of the plugin.

New from Version 2 is the shortcode support using which you can make magazine style list of posts from a category. See the screenshots for more details.
