Rearrange Output (4 posts)

    Hey, great tool but I'm wondering how I can rearrange the output so that the date comes before the title. I might be able to achieve what I'm looking for with CSS only, but it will likely be real clunky and it would be best to just have it output before the title. thanks!

    At this time I have not added output templates to the plugin, and not sure that I am going to do that any time soon. I might look into it if I think there is enough demand, but so far I haven't heard anyone else asking for something like this.

    I too would be interested in being able to override the output of the feed from my theme. In particular I would like an option to make using a snippet/excerpt override of the post content optional.

    I have a feed I'm wanting to display where I want the HTML of the feed content displayed as is (As it was very carefully crafted in the feed to be a list of metadata), it is really messed up when turned into an excerpt.

    I have been looking into how I could make this work easily, but haven't found a good solution as of yet. I am considering adding the ability to create "templates" in the setup area, and then add a field to select a template in the widget.

    Creating templates would be a drag and drop interface to include key elements in any order you want, using a grid type layout. Would this be enough to satisfy what is needed? I'd rather not allow using snippets from themes as those are volatile (meaning if you update a theme, these could be lost). If you have other ideas, please share them.
