Known bugs

When you have multiple widgets where you filter the content by the taxonomies, than when you save some of these widgets the taxonomy selector is multiplied for other widget than the one you just saved ;( This is not a crucial bug, it wont brake anything it is just something I want to fix. If you know how, let me know.

Future plans

  • Drag&Drop content builder
  • multiple custom meta comparison filter


Thanks to Scribu for his WP Navi that I have "integrated" as one of the navigation settings in to the widget. And thanks to Sribu again. When I tried to find an answer for all the uncommon problems it was his answer somewhere in the Interweb that helps me to find the solution. Thanks to you allyou are my source of knowledge.
