    Hello, I have installed and activated this plugin via WordPress admin. Trouble is, I can see the plugin in the list but can find no options or settings panel anything anywhere. It’s like there is no options, just an installed plugin and nothing there to it except its name on the plugin list in my WP admin.

    Not sure what to ask here. Where are the options/controls/settings for this thing. I have checked the FAQ and Support for info but nothing is there about locating the options and what is there is quite vague. I appreciate any assist or info you might have on this. Thanks

    If you visit the page posted above, you’ll see the widget in the left sidebar displaying the thumbnails and title of each post in one category. Note: I selected

      All Categories

    in the sidebar widget settings.

    This is not what I’m looking for. I want a thumbnail image from the post to appear on the Category post listing, each Category, I will have many.

    I had no idea that this plugin was a sidebar widget only. I thought it posted a thumbnail to the Category listing pages of the image in the Post, featured or not.

    Any idea why the featured image of my posts is being displayed as giant on top of the post? I have no featured images set on any posts. If I set a featured image to the posts, then that image displays giant above the post and giant on the Category listing page, plus the smaller image (actual size) display underneath the summary, so I do not have any featured images added to the posts, only other images in the post article.

    I guess my question is that, is this plugin only a sidebar widget? Does it not display a thumbnail in the Category listing pages? How could I possibly get by with a website that has only one Category listing summary on the sidebar? How can list all the posts from each Category with its title and thumbnail in the sidebar? That seems ridiculous. Is this for real? How did this plugin get 5 stars performing this way?

    I must be missing something big here and not setting it up correctly. Please advise and clarify any of this for me. Thank you much.

    Is this plugin only a sidebar widget?

    Yes. Only for widget areas.

    Does it not display a thumbnail in the Category listing pages?

    No, it does not do it. It displays thumbnails of posts, not of categories.

    How could I possibly get by with a website that has only one Category listing summary on the sidebar?

    At least not with that plugin. It seems the website already works as you desired.

    How can list all the posts from each Category with its title and thumbnail in the sidebar?

    I assume you want to list them in the content. If yes, use Ultimate Post List. Create a list, configure it and use its shortcode in the content.

    pretty lame answers if you ask me. I was merely looking for something to post a image from the posts to the category page. I don’t know what this plugin is for but it’s certainly not for me. You can’t even discern what I asked or am seeking. I’ve already uninstalled it. Thanks anyway
