    Hello again ;)
    i m using the custom template options, setting the loop.php in the custom template folder and editing it with my design options. (this is a great feature, thank you!!!)

    I was wondering if i can change the custom template for differents sections. For example: i have 2 sections, one called MAIN SLIDE and other called TOP POSTS and they are displayed in the same page on the layout. Can i use 2 different custom loops or a conditional like "if is mainslide then ..." or "if is top posts then" to display they with different design and layout?

    It is quite interesting problem :)

    For now, I would suggest you to pass custom parameter in query_posts function.

    for eg.

    query_posts('section_name=TOP POSTS'); ?>
    <ul>  <?php
        while ($the_query->have_posts()) : $the_query->the_post(); ?>
            <span class="mpo_post_title">
              <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr(get_the_title() ? get_the_title() : get_the_ID()); ?>">
                <?php if ( get_the_title() ) the_title(); else the_ID(); ?>
          </li> <?php
        endwhile; ?>

    mmm it doesn't work for me...i receive always the posts of the first query with the first section...
    i tried to use <?php wp_reset_query(); ?> too but always the same problem.
    what do you think about it? can you give me some more specifical tips?

    thank you so much again for your great plugin, i ll send you my completed website when it's done to show you the final product.
