    Hi,
    need a hint to understand where & how I can beautify the results. Didn´t find a description around here.
    This is how I want it:

    1. row: headline: bigger
    2. row: author & data: small
    3. row: excerpt 2-3 lines: normal
    4. if possible with small or featured pictures

    This plugin is working great so far and is very supportive for magazine-style pages. Thanks a lot indeed.
    And my pre-thanks for help.

    Well, right now I'm kind of in a poor position to provide a proper reply since I'm in the middle of development, but I'll try my best.

    When applying your content within 'before', 'content', and 'after' (btw, working on a custom exit message if no posts are found), you can also add CSS for ids and classes, or you can use the inline styling. I prefer inline styling since other CSS code usually can't interfere with inline (sometimes it does though, especially if it's in some JavaScript coding). Unfortunately there are some issues with excerpt shortcode, but you can use the param in it to shorten the amount of wording. In some instances, it doesn't work properly though (manual excerpts in one of em).

    Anyways, this should work for ya, but you may need to edit some of it to your style.

    Before
    <div style="">

    Content
    <a href="[post_permalink]"><img src=[post_thumb] alt=[post_title] style="float:left; width: 100px; margin: 0px 5px;" hspace="5" vspace="5" /></a><h2 style="margin:0px; font-size:200%"><a href="[post_permalink]">[post_title]</a></h2><p style="font-size:70%; margin-top:0px;">written by [post_author]</p><p style="font-size:100%;">[post_excerpt]</p>[final_end]<hr/>

    After
    </div>

    First: Many thanks for this quick reply in your middle of something: I really like your stile.

    Hi EkoJr,

    You hit the button! It is exactly as I wanted it. Many thanks & good wishes!

    The thing with the featured pictures shouldn´t be so hard I suppose.

    Best,

    Glad to see that it works as you expected. There is one problem though that you may already know about. The picture aren't cropped, so you have to try and match the ratio. Otherwise the pictures will seem stretched out. Other than that, things work fine with changing the size.
