    there's no explanation as to how to find category IDs which makes this plugin unusuable

    would have given this 5 stars if they'd added instructions...

    finally figured it out... in Posts > Categories you have to hover your mouse over the category name and look in your browser bar for the link. Then you can find the category ID number.

    Honestly, it's not that hard. Did you try googling your question?

    In my opinion, taking the time and space to write out such common directions is significantly more wasteful than having the occasional site admin that doesn't know -- simply google it.

    George, I believe 'your opinion' is wrong... because if you do write the instructions in your FAQ, you will never be asked the question again.

    Additionally, a simple screenshot of the widget setup would be a welcome addition. Saving users from having to download and install the plugin just to see how it looks/works/fits in their setups.

    I hope you find time to add this further information.
