  • After I have upgraded, the thumbnail setting in the Widget does not work.

    It’s set to thumbnail size 198×80 px, but is reset to default. Only if I set height to more than 100 it will change the size of thumb in height. It seems stuck on displaying thumbnail as close to a square as possible.

    The new visits are not populated in popular posts – it’s dead.

    The comments and views stats are not displayed on separate line, but just following a looooong line after title. This is a long time bug I hoped was fixed by now.

    Naturally I have not upgraded this in my production site, these problems must first be confirmed resolved in test lab.

    Production site is version 2.1.4, and I’m unable to have this with version 2.2.1

    Please advise.

  • I’m having the same problem. My thumbnail size is 45×70, but it is displaying as a 45×45 square.

    Actually, this update causes a TON of issues. For one, it sets the image as the “Featured Image,” which totally screws up my layout. For another, it somehow messes up the cache (or something) so that on some browsers the homepage never updates. Back to 2.1.4 it is.

    Hi Morten,

    I’m aware of the isse with the thumbnail width & height and I’m already working on that.

    About the comments and views stats, it can be fixed using CSS. I don’t include any predefined CSS with my plugin simply because it may mess up with your theme, so I leave that to the user as stated on the FAQ section.

    What is the status on the fix/upgrade?

    It’s still on the queue. Been reworking some other aspects of the plugin in the past few days. Will take care of it in the next days!
