1.2.5 (September 27, 2013)

  • [Fix] Removed compatibility "fixes" for Digg Digg and PodPress. See support forum for details and recommended fixes.
  • Thanks to @phrenq for troubleshooting help.

1.2.4 (September 18, 2013)

  • [Fix] Page selection menu no longer disappears after saving widget in WordPress 3.6.
  • [Fix] Remove the_excerpt filters for Digg Digg and podPress plugins before outputting widget excerpt.

  • [Improvement] Only load frontend CSS if widget is active.
  • [New] Example stylesheet added to /css/fpw_start_styles.css.

  • [News] This bug fix update should be the last one before v1.5.0 which will include new features including the ability to feature Posts!


  • [Fix] Modification to widget HTML. Wrap excerpt in div element, not paragraph. Developers: If you have changed the fpw_default.php files, please make this change in line 66. Overly-specific CSS selectors (e.g. p.fpw-excerpt) may break on this change.

  • Fixed image-size class.


  • Fixed version number and plugin update hook.
  • Added post classes & hAtom markup to widget view (see thread). If you have customized fpw_default.php, review changes to the template (see diff #644501, lines 31-32, 37, 66) and update your copy to take advantage of new classes.
