  1. Love this widget! quick question though, how do you make it so it doesn’t show gallery coding on the preview? it looks like this: [gallery link="post" ids="147,149"] This is a test page blah blah blah… more

    1. Open the plugin file (index.php) and search for “$this->get_excerpt($exp_length)” and replace it with “strip_shortcodes($this->get_excerpt($exp_length))”. This will solve your problem 🙂

  2. I’m trying to scale my thumbnail images to a max width of 50px. Vertical images seems to just be compressed no matter what I try.

    max-width:50px; height:auto; is not working.
    max-height:75px; width:auto; does however scale proportionally for both vertical and horizontal images.

    Any ideas?
