    Suggestion: I like to make a selection of pages in the widget. This makes it possible for me to show only the important changes and not the small ones.

    Question: It looks like if the font color is not black. It seems like if it has a hover color.

    Thanks for this plugin!

      Hi Willem

      Thanks for your input!

      Answer to your question:
      The color of the change date is defined in the file „list-last-changes.css“ in the definition „span.list_last_changes_date“ (the only definition). You can change it there (but will be overwritten on the next update) or add the definintion in your templates css file. The page Title has an hover color as all links in your template have one.

      For your suggestion I will send you an E-Mail to discuss it further.

    Hi Roland,
    I’m newbie in css, I can’t figure out how to fix this problem:
    I want to have separate lines for file and date if it’s possible, or space between file and date.
    Now it’s like this:

    News23 januari, 2015
    Partners and contacts7 november, 2014
    Viabal.eu7 november, 2014

    and I whish it to be like:

    23 januari, 2015

    Partners and contacts
    7 november, 2014
    7 november, 2014

    Is it possible?

    I use the latest version of „List Last Changes“.

    Kindly Regards

      Hi Tore

      Yes, it is possible. You can add the following style definition to your theme’s stylesheet:

      .list_last_changes_date {
          display: block;

      This will put the date in an own block directly below the title.
