Does not adhere to the theme, determines its own broad.

I love this plugin - it is easy to use and looks great on the website I am building; I had a quick query on laying it out, which I sent yesterday and within minutes received a response. Really recommend this if you are looking to display news items on your site.

A news section that is shown in a widget (can use also short codes to show on posts/pages). Write own news, shown the excerpt with a link to the full news. It's separated category from the blog posts, so it doesn't get mixed into newest articles. Exactly what I needed. Great support - got response within 24 hours.
