    Thank you for the review :)

    Regarding the widgets, the related posts widget allows you to customise the number of posts and thumbnail options.
    What other settings do you think would be useful to change on the widget?
    Ideally this was meant to be a replacement to the related posts at the bottom of each post.

    Available 2 widget options - are great and useful! :)

    What other settings do you think would be useful to change on the widget?

    For me maybe just individual icon size for widget. Available 2 widget options I use as - No. of posts: 15, Thumbnail options: Only icons, no text. On my site I use in widget a bit smaller icons, than in bottom of post. But it simple make by CSS. This can be very useful for people who do not know CSS. :) It is at your discretion.

    I use both (widget in right sidebar and manual bottom install) because some people like that, some like this.

    I send you on e-mail from your website my blog to look how plugin works.

    All i need now is display widget site-wide, not only in posts as now. But widget now works only in posts, I dont know why. So, I think it would be better to showing widget at all pages by default (site-wide). Independently of display settings for content installation. And for displaying widget on specified pages/categories worth using plugins like - "Display posts" (allow this feature).

    I received your email, thanks.

    The reason the widget works only on posts and not sitewide is because you can only get the related posts for the particular.

    e.g. on the homepage, you'll have 5 or 10 posts and then the widget cannot understand for which post should you display the related posts.
    Hence in this case it is best to display it at the bottom of your posts, as you've done on your site.

    Agreed on the Thumbnail options. I'll put this on the todo list for a future version of the plugin.

    Small wish - slightly better quality of generated icons. Now noticeable jpg compression artifacts.

    I can add that setting in. It's the default for timthumb.

    But, better jpg compression means higher file size

    Great idea! For me, quality is more important.
