Nice looking widget

I am not sure, if the topic belongs into this category. But is there any nice looking widget showing the last posts?

I have used the currently existing widget "Recent forum posts". But it does not have any style and just looks horrible. It does not really invite to click on it.

It would be great to get an response!


Best regards

we respond to all posts of course....

That is the only widget we provide... it contains minimal styling because most folks choose to style it differently.. what one wants does not fit all... but the widget itself provides many classes and IDs in order to make it easy for one to style as they desire...  

the recent posts in our footer, for example, uses the base widget...  we just add the css to style it...

if you describe what you want, we can help with the css if needed...

Dear Mr. Papa,

To be honest, your style of the footer widget looks already great. It would be a good starting point for me to optimze it to my needs (if required).

best regards

Unless @mr-papa knows differently ? I think this is just about all we use specifically for the widget. Of course the end result is always going to be equally dependent upon your WP theme styling.

#spRecentPostsTag {#spRecentPostsTag { text-align: left; }
#spRecentPostsTag .spListItemTag { padding-bottom: 15px; font-size: 90%; }
.spListItemTag { line-height: 1.3em; padding: 3px 0px 1px 0px; }
#spRecentPostsTag .spAvatar { float: left; padding-bottom: 20px; margin-top: 5px; }
.spListItemTag img { margin: 0px 10px 0 0; vertical-align: middle; }
