Settings :

  • var numPosts : Fill in the number of articles you want to display
  • var showpostthumbnails : Select true if you want to display the image and false to remove it
  • var showpostdate : Select true if you want to display the date and false to hide it
  • Apps : Please replace with the desired label, if more than two words use %20 instead of spaces

The Recent posts by tag widget can be developed further so that it can be positioned on the front page, so it doesn't have to be always in the sidebar. please comment if you have anything to ask. Thank You
