Super Useful New Widget Displays Recent Custom Post Types

If your WordPress site is displaying custom post types of any kind, you’re going to need an easy way to display those to your visitors. That’s why we’ve created a new Recent Custom Post Types Widget. It provides the simplest way to display your recent custom post types in the sidebar, footer or any other widgetized area.

You can use this widget to display classifieds, products, wiki pages, articles, forum entries, videos, you name it! It works with any kind of custom post type.

After you install the plugin, go to your widgets management screen to locate the widget. Drop it in any widgetized area and give it a title, assign your post type from the dropdown list, and check whether or not you’d like to display featured thumbnails. It’s that easy!

The best part is that this widget works with any of the hundreds of plugins out there that create custom post types. Mix and match with other plugins and create as many instances of the widget as you want.
