    Hi Aldolat,

    There are two things i expect from this plugin.

    One is, if there is any way to make a post image visible even after there is a featured image is not available.

    And another is that can align the posts in a set of two post horizontally?

    Hi jugmendra,

    1- Yes, if the post has an embedded image and you choose "The rich content" or "The full post" in "What type of text to display".

    2- You have to add a couple of styles in your CSS file. For example, in the Twenty Ten theme, these styles could be:

    li.pis-li {
    	float: left;
    	width: 95px;
    li.pis-li:nth-child(odd) {
    	margin-right: 10px;

    Starting from version 1.12 of the plugin, you can add these styles directly in the widget panel.

    Greetings to the developers of this great plugin!

    I have the same issue, therefore did not create a new thread, perhaps you can help me here.

    I do not usually set a featured image to my posts. So, as instructed above, I have selected "The rich content" or "The full post" in "What type of text to display"

    But it is picking the the image as full size and not cropping it to thumbnail size. Suppose if my image in the post was 900x900px the widget is showing the same size.

    My question is how to make those images to fit the thumbnail size of lets say 96x96?

    Looking forward.

    If you select "The rich content" or "The full post", the plugin will output the image as inserted in the post, so if the image is 900x900px it will be used at this size.

    Also, consider that the thumbnail is used only if you set up a "Featured image" in the post edit screen and you chose to display it in the widget panel.

    Thank you for your prompt reply!

    That was something I really needed - to have the automatic detection of the image within the post and use it as featured image and set the selected thumbnail size.

    Anyways, your plugin is the best one I have came across so far. I will have to search for alternate options which can fulfill my request.

    You have my 5 star in anyways ;)

    Your request requires an extra function... maybe in a not-so-far future it will be implemented in the plugin! :)

    Thanks for the stars!
