    I have implemented your plugin in my theme and it works fine. It is with Wordpres 3.0
    But I had to make a major change to take thumbnails from the tool that came built into my theme, and got it.

    This is the result:

    Thank you very much.

  5. Mike says:

    thanks for this nice plugin
    I installed it successfully but it does not show the posts
    see in my website
    What’s wrong?
    please help

  6. JD says:

    The plugin is great. Although my theme too have a featured category, I don’t use it as it is too big and I don’t like the way pictures are cropped.
    Anyway, this plugin helped my cause. I have successfully installed it in my side bar. But I want to use it in the header. I tried to do so, but I don’t have the codes (as widgets cannot be directly dropped in the header), so I need the codes so that I can put it in the right side of my header. Say 468X80 size.

    Can you help?

  7. JD says:

    I hope I am not bothering you

    halo bung, salam kenal
    kaget saya ternyata ini buatan anak indo :D

    gini bung saya udah mumet nyari plug in yg bisa tampilin posting secara random di sidebar + thumbnail, kira2 seperti ini saya udah coba semua plug in yang tersedia di wordpress tapi sayangnya tulisannya gk bisa rata sama gambar, kira2 bisa kasih solusinya gak ya? thanks bro :)

    P.S: plug in yang sudah saya coba: Advanced random post dan Random Posts Plugin
    P.S.S: saya juga udah coba plug in, maknyus! tapi saya mau yang statis tidak bergerak

    • reza says:

      salam kenal bung

      wah, ga nanya sama yg buat plugin itu aja bru? :mrgreen:

      coba diatur margin top thumbnailnya sampe sejajar dgn tulisan

      • krishna says:

        ok done with the problem, si pembuatnya gk bales2 trpaksa gugling seharian =,=
        oh ya bro mau nanya lagi nih bisa minta code untuk manggil function nya gak? jadi saya bisa naruh tampilannya di mana aja (ex: di bawah posting dll) :)

      • reza says:

        susah bru,

        plugin ini kan bikin widget baru, dan parameter2 dari widget ini terintergrasi dgn fungsi utk nampilin postingan+thumbnail+efek jquery….

        jadi rada rumit klo mau manggil fungsi gitu….bkn nda mau bantu, my fellow indonesian, susah euy :)

        saran gw sih, bikin area widget baru aja, terus widget plugin ini di-assign di area baru tsb

  9. Camelot says:

    I think your plugin has an incompatibility with SmothSlider, when both are activated, the carousel of Dynamic FP performs two or three full turns and then stops working, the worst thing is that instead of leaving a static entry left in place a blank .

    Help, please.

  10. Camelot says:

    The plugin is as Dynamic Featured Post, down in the sidebar. After a few cycles are shown as:

    • Camelot says:

      Podría explicarlo mejor así:
      Abrí dos instancias del navegador al mismo tiempo. En la ventana del lado izquierdo el plugin en una entrada, en el lado derecho en el home. Después de un espacio de tiempo el plugin ubicado en el home se queda vacío y ya no work a menos que yo mismo manualmente haga clic sobre los botones…

      • Camelot says:

        Could you explain it better this way:
        I opened two instances of the browser at the same time. In the left window the plugin in a post, on the right side in the home. After a period of time the plug located in the home remains empty and no longer work unless I also manually click on the buttons …

    • reza says:

      i’ve checked it and yes, there’s conflict with smoothslide

      sorry, i’ve tried but couldnt find the solution

  11. WalkFront says:

    Very Nice Plugin, Thanks For Share…. :D

  12. keith says:

    thanks for the great plug in!

  13. rienn says:


    I’ve installed ur plugin and initially it worked. But after few times arranging the widges, it stopped scrolling. And the media tag never worked, not once.

    Here’s the site:

    • reza says:

      in dynamicwp-featured-post.php file, in line 54 and 55, replace ‘$’ symbol with ‘jQuery’

      • rienn says:

        salam lebaran ya…

        i’m not sure which lines to modify… could u pls show me? thanks…

      • novalnd says:

        maksudnya seperti ini ya Bos…

        $myid = $args['widget_id'];
        $linkss = WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/index.html'.str_replace(basename( __FILE__),"",plugin_basename(__FILE__));
        echo "”;
        echo ”
        /* $(document).ready(function(—> $){
        line 55 —-> $(‘#dwp-featured-post-”.—> $myid.”‘).cycle({
        fx: ‘scrollVert’,
        next: ‘a#dwp-featuered-next’,
        prev: ‘a#dwp-feateured-prev’

        /* ]]> */
        echo $before_widget;
        if($title) echo $before_title . $title . $after_title;

        sudah diganti setiap simbol $, tapi kok ngak ngaruh ya?

  14. gunawan says:

    hi, saya telah berhasil menginstal plugin ini, tetapi tombol arah ke kanan dan kiri di klik tak mempengaruhi daftar postingan yang tampil, dan postinganya tidak keluar slideshow-nya. Mohon pencerahannya. Terima Kasih.

  15. jason says:

    Hi there, I have installed the plug in and it looks great but I cannot get it to play the specified tag it will only show the most current posts. Anyone else run into this issue?

  16. skqi says:

    terima kasih. Thank you so much for this free plugin.

  17. Billy says:

    I’m having a strange problem.. maybe it’s suppose to work this way?

    On the home page it shows all entries showing up. And when I click on a single post it shows that post instead of the one(s) I have tagged as featured.

    Any idea what’s up?

  18. Steve Deezy says:

    Thanks for this great plugin. After hours of searching I came across your blog. After activating the plugin and setting it up, It doesnt seem to agree with my sidebar. I’m rather new to all this and would really appreciate any help. my url is thanks.

  19. Richard says:

    Hi. I think you’ve got a nice plug-in. However, it’s only viewing 1 post.

    I’ve loaded your plug-in, and then replaced the php file with the one mentioned in your earlier post. I’ve selected 2 posts to view in the Featured Posts (I’ve given each post a “post tag” name). In the widget controls, the drop-down shows both post tags, but allows me to choose only 1. So, dDoes this mean that this plug-in can display only 1 featured post? (If so, then why is there left/right arrows under the featured post?)

    Thank you,

  20. Tks you.
    I’ve loaded your plug-in, and then replaced the php file with the one mentioned in your post.

  21. Alex says:

    Dear DynamicWP,

    I’m on the WP 3.1 and it’s not pulling the featured post from the tag I assigned. Please help. I think you have one of the best widgets out there, to handle highlighted content.

    My site is in development right now. I’m migrating over shortly so I can try to sort out the development challenges.


  22. Luke says:

    Is this comaptible with the latest wordpress (3.3.1)? Although it picks up the featured posts, there doesn’t seem to be any thumbnails?

  23. Radio Base says:

    Great plugin, thank you ;)

  24. Mr. WP says:

    Hi, I used your plugin and it works fine, but there is one issue. It just displays just 1 post and it just keeps looping back in forth. I even enabled the tags and shows just the top or latest post I have entered into WP. Can you help on fixing this?

  25. basitijaz says:

    I guess this is what I have been looking for. Going to install it, lets see if it fits to my needs or not. Meanwhile check this out
