Reviews

Problem after update

Today I updated plugin and now it is working in a strange way - lines with recent comments in the sidebar moved aside and it looks really bad. I hope that the author will fix it in tne near future. Several years that I have used this plugin, everything was fine. What a pity that this happend after update.

Does the job perfectly

Exactly what I was looking for, might be helpful if the faq listed a few of the css tags you use to make it easier for newbs to customise the look but otherwise excellent 😀
