    Hello,


    So let's say that I made a blog post about "Blue Cars", I then assign it on the "Cars" category, what I want is for my recent posts (in sidebar) to show only the recent posts from the "Cars" category. Then, if this visitor somehow wanted to check out my other posts on other topics like... "Red Motorcycles", when he/she visits the "Red Motorcycles" post, the Recent Post widget will only show the recent posts from the "Motorcycles" category.

    I've been searching high and low for this, I don't know if I'm just not putting in the correct search terms in G00gle but I can't seem to find a Recent Post plugin that displays only the recent posts from the current posts category.

    Any suggestions? Free or premium plugin is fine, as long as it works. I'm about to go crazy with this lol.

    Thanks.

    Does your theme support custom sidebar, if so then make a different sidebar for each category

    Yes, I was thinking between the same line with custom sidebars. But your request seems a little hard.\

    If a visitor opens a post on Blue cars, He should ONLY see recent posts about cars right?
    Well, i have never come across any plugin like that. You can check Codecanyon
