Extended Recent Posts

Really simple extended version of the default recent posts widget for wordpress.

The extra features:

  1. Shows posts excerpt
  2. Custom “show more” characters
  3. Limit number of excerpt words shown
  4. Show or hide post date

You can see the example on this page in the footer on the left side.
