Extensive customisation of lists without the need to add CSS to sites. Thanks !

We found β€œWP Category Post List” to be very flexible and versatile. Especially when you need to select a Post based on more than one category. We can select a post where both categories must be present (category A and category B) not just one or another, like in most other plugins. This plugin has a graphical interface, so you can preview it as you build your selection. The ability to select different looks and designs make it even more useful. We also purchased the paid version of this plugin (Advanced Content Viewer Pro). We give this plugin 5 stars for functionality, design, and support that is very timely.
