    I'd like my thumbnails to be 83x48, but they keep coming out square (48x48). How do I control this?

    As I understand - WordPress tries to calculate sizes proportionally to original image size. So If your image is quadratic then it will ignore one of sizes (width or height) and still try to change size proportionally.

    But here you can see, that [frp_thumbnail] shortcode supports "size name". So it will work perfectly if you insert such shortcode - [frp_thumbnail size="thumbnail"].
    But how can you define your own sizes? You can use Simple Image Sizes plugin. It will allow to create new size and all images will be precached with this size.

    So steps to resolve this issue:

    1. Download Simple Image Sizes plugin.
    2. Go to Settings->Media page and add new size name (For example - "post-widget-thumbnail") with required width, height and crop settings.
    3. Go to Appearance->Widgets page, edit FRP widget and add [frp_thumbnail size="post-widget-thumbnail"] such shortcode.
