  • Number: The quantity of updates to show

And is totally customizable.

Customization

The updates are wrapped by these CSS classes:

  • ul.formspringme-updates : The list of updates
  • li.formspringme-update : The list item that contains the update, this is child of ul.formspringme-updates
  • span.formspringme-question : The text of question
  • span.formspringme-answer : The text of answer
  • p.formspringme-askme-link : The text of user profile link

Note: This plugin doesn’t uses the API of Formspring.me because it isn’t avaiable yet. So, this may still unavailable at any time.
