WordPress Plugin: Recently Updated Pages

Today I’ve released a WordPress plugin called “Recently Updated Pages” which is a WordPress Widget that displays your recently updated page list on the sidebar.

I was looking for a similar plugin but after searching for a while I wanted to write my own plugin. I followed some instructions on couple of websites and created this plugin. It uses WP_Widget class from WordPress core and extends it to build the widget. You can download it form WordPress Plugin page at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/recently-updated-pages/

I’ve updated the plugin and committed the latest version (1.0.1) to WordPress plugin directory. The updated version will allow users to include list of blog Posts in the Recently Updated list. Originally the plugin only displayed list of updated Pages and now with this optional choice you can toggle between the option.

    I am looking for a plugin that will allow me to display the page update information where I want, not at a forced predetermined location.

    Will your plugin allow this?

  • Thanks Susan. After chatting with you and realizing your desire to have the extended functionality of the plugin I’ve updated it. Now you will find a checkbox in the widget editor to display the list of Posts along with the list of Pages.

    My initial need was to only display the Page list, therefore, created the plugin. But as I released it to public I figured I will have to make sure your requirement is met. So, here it is. Let me know if you think it is missing any feature or could be extended.


  • What version of WordPress are you using? It is compatible for 2.8+

    I’ve just tested it here, it seems to be working just fine. What is your blog’s URL?

    Doesn’t seem to work. I updared a page and it didn’t show it!
    What’s goin on?
