I'd been waiting to try this plugin for a while and finally got the chance. A few things caught me off guard and so I thought I'd just pass on what I had expected to happen:
- I was surprised that the date of posts was a link. I ended up using CSS to try to hide that fact, but that's far from optimal.
<div>containing excerpt is displayed even when "Do not show any text" selected. It's unnecessary markup and could get in the way of wanting to do certain types of styling.
- I understand the rationale for not showing categories with 0 posts in the "Category" drop down, but it meant I had to publish a fake post to select it while setting up a widget.
Overall, it's a nice plugin though. Thanks.
