I would like the Featured Image of a Post to display beside the Excerpt in the Latest Posts widget.
How can I achieve this ?
Also if I didn’t want to use the Featured Image, but instead the first image in the Content, how could I achieve that ?

the default WordPress Recent Posts widget doesn’t support thumbnails.
You would need to use a plugin instead – for example:March 16, 2020 at 5:40 am #1196205Tim
I’m not aware of a best practice method for adding a such a third party widget to the main content area of a page.
Do you have a code snippet or alternative solution for that ?

I have updated with a link.
It is a Page currently using the WP “Latest Posts” widget for a single category “team” with its listing option set to “Excerpt”
I’m attempting to add the Post’s thumbnail to the listing.

OK Thanks David
I have that working now listing with WP Show Posts with the Featured Image and Excerpt, I didn’t see a way to use first image in post, so now I’m wondering if there is a way to suppress displaying the Featured Image from the post view ?

TLDR – Customizer > Layout > Blog –> Featured Images -> Post (tab) Uncheck Display Featured ImageMarch 16, 2020 at 10:53 pm #1196932Tim
