How to Display Custom Post Types in a Widget

Here’s a quick tip.

I needed to display a quick list of posts from a particular custom post type, in the same way as the WordPress default ‘Recent Posts’ widget works.

Here are three ways to achieve that:

  1. Build a custom menu and use a widget that can display menus.
  2. Use the Views plugin
  3. Use the Flexible Posts Widget plugin
