How to install & configure

1. You can use the built-in installer.
OR
Download the zip file and extract the contents.
Upload the ‘recent-posts-slider’ folder to your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/).
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

And now go to Settings and then Recent Posts Slider to configure any options as desired.

  • I like the plugin, but now I’m getting an error in my admin pages:

  • PS. Seems to have something to do with trying to show post thumbnails. If I only show excerpt, the error doesn’t seem to occur… I think! Also, it was showing images that had been removed from posts, ever after clearing cache, etc.

    Thanks! Otherwise perfect!

  • Hello.
    Is there a way to use multiple Sliders in the same sidebar. Each with another category of wich the posts are shown?
    Thanks for your reply.

  • This is a great tool you’ve got here, but for some reason (since the WP 3.3.1 update) the ‘Settings’ option is no longer displayed. Basically this means that I have the plugin installed, but can’t place it.

    This was working great before…

  • Finally, you need to verify that your upload directory is properly set. Some hosts screw this up, so you’ll need to check. Go to “Settings” -> “Miscellaneous” and find the input box labeled “Store uploads in this folder”. Unless you are absolutely sure this needs to be something else, this value should be exactly this (without the quotes) “wp-content/uploads”. If it says “/wp-content/uploads” then the plugin will not function correctly. No matter what, the value of this field should never start with a slash “/”. It expects a path relative to the root of the WordPress installation.
