This plugins adds two widgets: Classified Recent Posts and Classified Recent Comments. They differ from the default widgets only in one thing - each listed link contains HTML class attribute describing which post it is related to. For recent comments the whole li tag also contains this attribute.

Listed classes are similar to the output from get_post_class (see WordPress Codex), each class has a prefix to prevent problems with CSS styling
