Both versions are included in archive, but only "Basic Version" is activated by default.

Activate "Widget Version" via ByREV Category Cloud from wp admin menu: /wp-admin/plugins.php

Note: Widget Version version does not work without the "Basic Version" so, both version must be active ... otherwise you will receive an error message:

*Ups! ByREV Fast Category Cloud Plugin Error!

Widget Version does not work without Base Version, so please enable it and the Base Version!*
