Awesome. Nice, Simple & Elegant. Thank you. One request please. Remove or option to hide dots on mobile. Dots not showing on desktop, laptop & tablet. Increasing number of posts result in multiple rows of dots. Kindly consider.

It does everything paid plugins do and in a more flexible, efficient and lightweight way! My custom posts worked PERFECTLY as a Gutenburg block, Elementor block, AND as a widget! No shortcodes, no extra layer of GUI, NO MESS! Simple and perfect! This plugin is ALSO responsive, just can't describe how perfect this is!! I would give this 10/5. Really excited to see what this developer will develop next!!!

Finally I found a nice plugin for showing posts!! I can't use it only for one reason: no pagination available. My idea is to show 9 posts and then the pagination right below so they can go to the next page and load the next 9. I'm currently using WP Show Posts and it does the job, but it's not that customizable like this one. If you can add an option to show pagination I'd love to use this awesome plugin. Or if you have any suggestions to do it in any other way it would be nice. My theme is Generate Press (paid version).

As title, Your plugin is nice but the display number of post in post slider is not working so well. 1 and 2 posts display is well. But can not show more than 3 posts. I will re-rate whenever it's fixed. Update: Fixed. Thanks for your support
