    WARNING! After installing this plugin and getting my API key, the plugin interacted with my web server SO MUCH that the tech support guys BLOCKED my account. They thought the plugin was a DOS attack.

    Once I disabled the plugin, my server load returned to normal.

    Hi, could you explain, how you configured the plugin? I mean, if possible, could you export the plugin-options from the database with a query like this:

    SELECT *
    FROM wp_options
    WHERE option_name = 'widget_blogintroduction'

    I couldn't explain to me, what's going wrong at your side.

    Did you activate the ajax-refresh and what refresh-Intervall you entered?

    How many entries do you have in the category you used?

    This sounds all very strange to me but I need some info to do something like a diagnosis of the problem comming up there at your side.

    regards, Kim

    I suppose you didn't filled the field for the refreshtime with a proper value. I tested it here and got heavy load due a javascript "setTimeout(..., 0) - call.

    New Version sets the refresh-time to a default of 10 seconds, if it is less or unset.

    Think this could be the fix for the reason of your trouble.

    Now one week has passed and no further reaction from mhains nor from other users. That makes me thinking that this case should be closed.
