    The update wiped out all of the post thumbnails. Deleted the plugin and reinstalled it. Now the size settings for the post thumbnails don't show in the widget panel.

    Hi erie,

    The reason why you're not getting the thumbnails is because the TimThumb script my plugin was using caused critical security issues to many blogs around the web, so I decided to have it removed and use the WordPress' Post Thumbnail feature instead. An exploit was actively being used, so I was forced to take it down.

    Here you can find instructions on how to use the Post Thumbnail feature and how to enable it: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/413441#post-1562888.

    I know this is troublesome, however keeping everyone's sites safe is more important to me so I hope you can understand.
