The tutorial I am sharing with you today is more of an advanced tutorial, for persons who know their way around WordPress already. I am going to show you how to display the most recent posts from a specific category. This is particularly useful when creating magazine style themes.
Anyone who uses WordPress regularly knows about the Post Format feature and while it is great, the problem with it is that it is tied to the template you are using. And a lot of theme developers pick and choose which formats they support and some just straight up don't support them. Now while it isn't a problem if you have never used them, if you do use them, you tend to lose support for some formats when you change themes. Which is why after much contempt, I decided that I would just write a plugin to handle it.
