Thank you for your appreciation, and I'm glad you enjoy the plugin. I still give most of the credit to Kalin for creating the framework for the plugin, but since then, the plugin has evolved to be more dynamic and extensive, and there's still more to come. Right now though, I'm going back through and correcting the current issues before I continue with more new features.
However, with layout control, there is some interference with some themes and HTML elements inside the preset post list. Which can be a good or bad thing for the post lists, but I've designed the plugin to be isolated/encapsulated to prevent the plugin itself from interfering with other parts of the webmaster's site. Glad you noticed it, because it is one of the main goals I try to maintain.
Anyways, hope you continue to enjoy the plugin as it evolves with future update releases.
