I bought the premium version of this widget, but it's not a standalone widget. You have to install both the free and premium, which is fine I guess.
It was a nightmare to set up. I'm using a StudioPress Genesis template which seems to be pretty much compatible with everything. But, this widget was a real pain. Once it was finally set up, it worked like a charm. I really like the look of it on my site.
The widget is updated frequently - I mean VERY often. I was nervous about that in the beginning, but was assured the updates wouldn't change any of my customizations to the CSS.
Another update came through, and this time knocked ALL of my widgets offline. Nothing worked on my site. I had to disable the premium version of the widget in order to get it back to "normal." But now I have no premium widget, which I paid for. I'm waiting for a response on the support ticket.
Support is so-so for this widget. The developer answers support requests very quickly, but his answers are often too brief to understand how to solve a problem. He quickly closes support tickets as soon as he provides his answer. He seems like a very nice, competent and intelligent guy, but I honestly don't have the time to troubleshoot one widget on my site.
If it would just work and I could just leave it alone, I'd be very happy. Isn't that what we all want? Buy a widget, it works, you go on with the important stuff, like actually writing content?
