[resolved] Featured image with post title only (6 posts)

    First of all, thanks a lot for an awesome plugin! I'm looking forward to having it all set up.

    I do have an issue regarding displaying a title and featured image but no excerpt, however. When I select 'Display only the post titles' in the widget my featured image doesn't show, and I can't seem to get a result when I put '0' into the 'Set your preferred value for the amount of words' box.

    If there's any way I can get around this that would be wonderful. Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

    @kavp - Currently displaying the "Featured Image" is tied to displaying some part of the content of the posts involved; and the logic of setting the words to display as zero makes sense, it is part of the reason I offer the option to only show post titles.

    As it is, I will take these ideas into consideration ... thank you for the feedback.

    Any update on this. Having just an image and title would be great!

    Eureka!

    Well, sort of ... I just quickly modified the plugin to add a "no excerpt at all" option. This is part of the 2.1-alpha version ... it needs more testing in a few areas (maybe this option, too).

    If you would like to try it, download the plugin from its GitHub repository here: https://github.com/Cais/bns-featured-category

    That was fast.

    Just installed the 2.1 Alpha version on a test site and it works very well.

    I need to play around will the CSS to get the images centered on the widget. But after that it's looking very good!

    One quick question. Have you any data/feedback on the amount of resources / queries this plugin uses? It seems very light weight which is good.

    @Dave - Thanks.

    I intentionally did not style a great many points in the plugin but I do allow for a custom stylesheet to be used that will retain any additional styles you may add.

    As to "any data/feedback", I do not have anything nor am I aware of any other studies; essentially the plugin is simply running a very customizable loop and I would suspect it uses not much more if any additional resources than what your theme's standard loop (only) uses.
