    Brilliant plugin, but I have one problem with using 'Post Offset'. This term appears to do two different things, depending on whether you're looking at the WP 'Settings' panel or the 'Widget':

    1.) In the settings panel it allows you to tick a box which the instructions say will tell SRP not to display a post in the SRP output if it is on a single post page outputting that post. This doesn't work, as both appear on single pages.

    2.) In the widget, 'Post Offset' stands for 'ignore the following number of most recent posts', which is useful on the home blog page and does work.

    I am using the cleanRoar template if it helps. I would like to get the first option working if there is a fix.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Are you still using this plugin? I will post a support, but thought I'd see if anyone has asked the same question yet. Your question is different than mine, but your longer experience with this plugin, if you're still using it, might allow you to help me.

    I'd like this plugin to work on my blog home page, but I've tried everything. The blog home page, which is the recent posts page, will not show the posts as I'd like. I put the code in the page/col-2 area of the index.php and makes no change, but depending on what current code I delete or where I place the code in that section, various things happen - never to that page, though. The results that changes is when I click on a category link in col-1. Maybe it's come coding in that plugin that makes it not work, but it is a puzzle.

    The blog home page is here: http://ridingthewave.net/kowabunga-blog/ As I'm submitting this, the code is currently not placed on the page, though I may be fooling around with it again.

    I'm trying to get only 2 or 3 posts to show up on that page with a good deal of the post after the title. This is the way I always see it.

    I appreciate it if you're able to help me.

    I never got any further with this plugin.

    But if I'm reading you correctly, you want to show two/three posts on your main blog page with a large portion of the post below each title. If that's the case, don't bother with the plugin and simply use WordPress, as follows:

    1. From WP admin go to 'Settings > Reading'. Change the 'Blog pages show at most' X posts to the desired number of posts, 2 or 3.

    2. When writing posts, use the 'more' tag at the point where you want to end 'home' blog page content.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for trying, but it didn't work. I would like the thumbnails if I can get them. I think it must be something in the code of the left side categories plugin that's messing it up, but I have no idea how to fix it. I like that plug in and did some work to make it function properly. Of course, I guess it's not functioning properly if the page settings don't work. :)
