    I have been using this plugin for some time on a series of blogs. So far I haven't noticed any issues with regard to WP 3.5.

    Since this plugin is no longer supported, I am actively looking for a replacement.

    Hey guys, just wanted to drop a quick note to let y'all know I've taken over development of this plugin from the previous developer and have updated it to work with WordPress 3.5 in case you're still looking for a solution.

    Cheers,
    Brady

    After upgrading, I find that my links have been deactivated even though I can still see the address in the widget. Also, there used to be an option to open in new tab/window. Is that gone? If you go to http://www.ccj-online.com/onsite I have a leaderboard ad and side banners which show up fine but are not linked anymore. Is there an easy fix? Thanks.

    Hi scottschwieger, if you don't mind, please open new issues in a separate thread so they're easier for people to find and to keep track of.

    I took a quick look regarding the links not working and found what's causing that for pre-existing widgets. If you choose an image using the new media manager instead of using the "Image URL" field, it should work. Otherwise, I'll release an update shortly that should address it.

    As for the open in new window functionality, it's not available in the new version. I'll look into adding it since I can see it being useful for image widgets that are used like ads.

    Thanks for bringing these to my attention.

    Appreciate the quick response. Would love to see "new window" functionality.

    A fix for the links not working with legacy widgets and the new window functionality should be available in the latest update. Hope the helps.

    Cheers,

    Hi Brady,

    I've been a huge fan of this plugin for a few years now and I just noticed that the plugin stopped working when I upgraded to WordPress 3.5.1 which just recently came out.

    I can still see the images on the sidebar where I uploaded all my images using this plugin, however, I used to be able to center them using the following CSS that I inserted into my theme <head> section using this:

    .simpleimage {
    text-align: center;
    }

    After the upgrade, I find that I cannot use this CSS style. Have you changed these statements, or can you give me an alternate way of centering the images using the plugin. I really loved this plugin and I was hoping to continue using it. I just need the images centered like I was able to previously.

    Thank you.

    Laura Tower

    I also have encountered the same problem as lauritasita.

    Could you give us an idea if you're working on a fix for this please, Brady?

    Many thanks

    Hi lewisscrafton,

    According to Brady from this plugin thread:

    "You can still target the widget using CSS. I believe the old version had an extra div that had the class you referenced, but the main widget class is still the same so you can use it to apply styles to your widgets. This should work:
    .widget_simpleimage {
    text-align: center;
    }
    You may need to adjust that depending on your theme or target the image specifically if you don't want all of the widget's contents centered. Hope that helps.

    - Brady"
