Multiple Widget Support broken (3 posts)

    Love this plugin and everything appears to work with WP 3.0.1 EXCEPT for support of multiple widgets. Only the first instance of the widget works. all other instances display, but do not link/jump to the associated page.

    Also I noticed that subcat pages jump to the "permalink" URL, but parent category pages jump to the default http://www.yoursite.com/?cat=17 URL. Would be nice if that could get looked at too...

    I was able to look at the multiple dropdown issue and will have that fixed in the next release (hopefully this weekend). I had just copied the code from the built in widget and it would hardcode each dropdown's id to "cat" which caused Javascript issues. Each dropdown will now be qualified with the widget ID so you can have as many on the page as you want.

    The other issue with parent categories going to the non-rewritten URL is out of my control at this point. I haven't look to see if there has been a ticket opened, but all that redirection is handled by WordPress, not my plugin or widget. I opened a ticket in trac about this: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/15256
