This is my first attempt at creating a XenForo 2 addon. It is a XenForo widget which will pull the latest posts or pages from a WordPress installation. This addon should not require a bridge but the authors of the blog posts ID and user_id should match.

Options
Set the absolute path
Set the widget title
Set the number of blog posts to show (Default=5)
Set the offset (Default = 0)
Set the post type (Default = post)
Show WordPress categories

This addon is built for the default XenForo style. The CSS resides in widget_trn_xenlate_latestposts.css.

This is my first XenForo 2 addon. It is free to use on any website. Please provide feedback and suggestions. Let me know if this works.

Found this when looking for a widget example project to get me started on developing something exactly like this! Works a treat.

Couple of comments:
I personally would have placed many options on the widget options screen rather than within the main XF options. This could allow flexibility if to use the widget in different areas with different display options.

I was considering a widget that consumes the WordPress RSS feed to better decouple the architecture. This version runs WP code in process, so will be tied to Wordpress updates. But it does afford better functionality to dig out category/image info, and easy to extend to use WP Post meta data too.

Nonetheless, this Widget works a trea and looks good on the front end.
