    I’m sorry. I tried very hard to make the usage and documentation as clear as possible … my apologies for my failure.

    You are not forced to use a widget.

    There is an “Is there an easy way to construct the shortcode?” question on the FAQ page which, I thought, quite clearly stated that you do not have to set up a widget, but that the simplest way to configure a shortcode was still to make use of the widget’s Assist facility.

    For those who do not wish (or need) to take advantage of the widget’s Assist, the documentation for the Shortcode Parameters is in Other Notes (also linked to from the Description page).
    However, I have just noticed that the Other Notes page is being truncated, so it appears that I have hit a limit of some sort … I am going to investigate that further, and I will try to provide an alternative source of documentation. Please bear with me.

    There is currently no separate configuration page for the shortcode because that facility – and more – is provided by the widget form. Duplicating the widget form and Assist into a second, separate configuration page just for shortcode construction seemed (to me) to be unnecessary, and an over-complication (bloat?) of the plugin code … however, that too I will re-investigate.

    Once again I apologise for my shortcomings. I can only hope that up are not too disappointed with the CMW plugin, but if you are I am sure there are plenty of excellent alternative plugins available that will provide the same functionality, and in a more pleasing and sensible manner.

    The documentation has now been re-jigged a bit – the Shortcode Parameters are now under Installation, and displaying in their entirety – and I have clarified that non-one is forced to use a widget (even though that is the prime function of the plugin). While bearing in mind the “configuration page” request for the shortcode, I am marking this as resolved…
