A very simple news plugin that output an unordered list. (img, title, date, excerpt and link)
- News are order by pub date.
- A post type "NEWS" is added.
- On the options page (WP Settings Menu -> "Simple News"): choose image size and unset the plugin CSS (if you like).
- A widget that will show your defined number of latest news. Options to filter results by category id.
- Shortcodes: [news] - [news number=2] - [news order=desc] - [news number=3 order=asc] - [news cat=1] - [news cat=1,2]
Can I request a feature to be added on the plugin?
Certainly and would love to hear about it. BUT - It is meant to be a very simple clean and useful plugin.
- Download the plugin, and unzip it.
- Place the News folder in your wp-content/plugins folder.
- Activate the plugin from the plugins tab of your WordPress admin.
Save permalink structure again - because of the post type (news)
Publish some news with the new post type = NEWS (Admin menu to the left)
- Place the News-widget where you want it to appear
- Use the shortcode on a published page
