No image options

Your theme needs to support Post Thumbnail, please go to https://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails to read more info and how to activate it in your theme.

¿Cómo añado un estilo personalizado?

First, please uncheck the Use Default Style option then place the css code below on the Additional CSS panel on Customizer, then you can customize it to fit your needs

.rpwe-block ul {
    list-style: none !important;
    margin-left: 0 !important;
    padding-left: 0 !important;
}
.rpwe-block li {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #eee;
    margin-bottom: 10px;
    padding-bottom: 10px;
    list-style-type: none;
}
.rpwe-block a {
    display: inline !important;
    text-decoration: none;
}
.rpwe-block h3 {
    background: none !important;
    clear: none;
    margin-bottom: 0 !important;
    margin-top: 0 !important;
    font-weight: 400;
    font-size: 12px !important;
    line-height: 1.5em;
}
.rpwe-thumb {
    border: 1px solid #eee !important;
    box-shadow: none !important;
    margin: 2px 10px 2px 0;
    padding: 3px !important;
}
.rpwe-summary {
    font-size: 12px;
}
.rpwe-time {
    color: #bbb;
    font-size: 11px;
}
.rpwe-alignleft {
    display: inline;
    float: left;
}
.rpwe-alignright {
    display: inline;
    float: right;
}
.rpwe-aligncenter {
    display: block;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
}
.rpwe-clearfix:before,.rpwe-clearfix:after {
    content: "";
    display: table !important;
}
.rpwe-clearfix:after {
    clear: both;
}
.rpwe-clearfix {
    zoom: 1;
}

Why so many !important in the css code?

I know it’s not good but I have a good reason, the !important is to make sure the built-in style compatible with all themes. But if you don’t like it, you can turn of the Use Default Styles and remove all custom css code in the Custom CSS box then create your own style.

This is an excellent Plugin! It is well designed, does what it claims to do, and doesn't waste your time. I tried other plugins before finding this one. This one is the REAL THING!

This is a very useful plugin that works really well and has lots of filters to customize as needed. Thanks!!

Nice plugin, but you need to change the markup. This is very incorrect markup when there is a heading (<h3>) inside the link (<a>). use <span> inside <li> or some other tags. Due to erroneous markup, I cannot use this plugin on many sites/

I had complained that several widget setting had no effect. I had "display thumbnail" unchecked, yet thumbnails were displayed I had "display date" unchecked, yet the dates were displayed I've noticed the same problem with an similar widget I tried in place of this one. There could be an incompatibility with my theme or another plugin. Changed from 1 to 4 stars since I can no longer assume the problem is with this plugin alone, and anything less than 4 stars would be unfair.
