FAQ

Can I modify the style of the post list?

The plugin comes with a very basic stylesheet. It uses your theme’s default markup for widgets.
If needed, you should add your own styles to your own theme’s stylesheet.
Furthermore, every link has a class “lastseen” which you may use in your theme’s stylesheet.

Can I configure the number of posts to show up?

Not yet.

Can I show a thumbnail alongside the title ?

Yes. If your post has a featured image, this will show up here.
