    I downloaded and installed the plugin on a test site. After adding the widget to the sidebar, all I get is a big orange RSS icon that links to the feed URL. Where are the buttons?

    Looks like you may have an undocumented requirement for jQuery. If so, this plugin wouldn't work in many sites.

    The design of this plugin is that there is a single "subscribe" icon that expands upon being hovered over.

    and yes the plugin does use jQuery for the hover operation yet this wouldn't be an issue with WordPress sites as WP natively uses and loads jQuery itself.

    Hi Mike,

    I like this plugin. In scripts.js I had to change line 2:

    jQuery("div.subscribe_me, li.subscribe_me").hover(function() {


    jQuery("section.subscribe_me, div.subscribe_me, li.subscribe_me").hover(function() {

    Because my theme uses a lot of HTML5 markup. Also the box was not expanding until I changed the "width" attribute of .subscribe_me_extra and gave it a z-index of 10:

    .subscribe_me_extra {
      width: auto;
      z-index: 10;

    Maybe a max-width would have been better... oh well it's working :-)

    Hopefully that helps someone else.

    Warm regards,
