differece between few recent post widgets and usage?

hi i use recent global posts to show posts from some blogs and livestream widget to show all post from network, can you tell me whats difference between this widgets and
https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/recent-global-posts-feed/
https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/recent-posts/
https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/recent-custom-posts-type-widget/

it seems that they work same thing? i also use site categories plugin to sort sites by language, can you tell me what of this 3 linked plugins + live stream widget is good to customise to show posts from only one category. i mean if user select on registration category for germany, to make widget that show posts only from all germay category sites.

    Hey @Nikola,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    Those three plugins are pretty similar and we looking to include them in one plugin or make some other kind of integration so users don't get confused.

    Recent Global Posts Feed is basically a widget that shows latest global posts without much chance of customization.

    Recent Network Posts is added to site by using shortcode and allows more options to customize it by using shortcode options.

    Recent Custom Posts is a widget like first one, but it can show custom post types and provides some additional options.

    i also use site categories plugin to sort sites by language, can you tell me what of this 3 linked plugins + live stream widget is good to customise to show posts from only one category. i mean if user select on registration category for germany, to make widget that show posts only from all germay category sites.

    Are you referring to Site Categories plugin https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/site-categories/ ?

    Could you also provide me with some more info here so we can better understand the question.
    Are you looking for visitors to select which category will show in the widget, or when new site is registered under Germany category and user adds widget to sidebar which will show only posts from other subsites that are registered under same category?

    Best regards,
    Predrag

    Hey Nikola,

    I hope you're well today!

    I think you may want to give this plugin a try. It's not very popular (just over 50 installs) but its features seem to be just what you need. I've put it on my test setup and it works quite good for me, however I think you'd need to put it under some more "stressful" tests. I'm pretty sure though it should do the job :slight_smile:
