    Perhaps I am dull witted, but my dropdown box shows only eleven post titles plus the "take a random post" How do I select a post beyond the first eleven?

    How many postst do you actually have (except of the eleven)? And are they custom post types? That could be one reason. Could you provide me a URL of a site, where you are using the widget?

    Thanks.

    My blog actually has close to 1000 posts, so it would be nice if we could be able paste the URL of a blog post in a field that would be the featured post. Any possibility for a future release?

    Hi Jym,

    it would be actually a step back. I had the widget the way, that you gave the id of a post to get it featured. A lot of people did mistakes with that and I decided to put the posts into that dropdown menu.

    So, I don't think I will go back to an id anymore. However, I can understand that choosing from a 1k+ list is annoying. I will think of something.

    Best,
    Stefan

    I actually added fields for the ID of a post and a backup post, to not have to leave through thousands of options.
