Thanks for the great plugin. Exactly what I need.
I have run into one issue. I'm only using the tags filter which I'm displaying in only one category using a template file. When I add the widget at the top of my page and before the loop, the filtering no longer works and all the posts are displaying instead of the default 9 I have set in the "Reading Settings". When I place the widget after the loop, everything works as it should. My design requires the widget be at the top of the page though and would rather not use CSS to move it there.
I've tested the same widget settings before the main loop in the main blog feed and everything works great there. So, from what I've seen, this only happens in the category template page or archive page.
Also, I've tried this with two completely separate themes and get the same result.
Any help is appreciated!
