Works like it should

It works like it should. It's lightweight and just enough options. It's easily styled with CSS too. Great plugin. Stuff like this should just be in core.

Exactly what I wanted.
Ich wundere mich nur, warum ein 2-zeiliger Titel eines Blog Posts nicht b√ľndig auf zwei Zeilen untereinander erscheint.

One Feature from Perfect!

Works perfectly. Lots of options already in there to suit most people. Very easy to use.

The only thing I'd like is the option to take a random square crop from a featured image to use as a thumbnail rather than all-or-nothing.

Does a good job

Nice and simple widget, would be so much nicer if you could override its output in a separate file in your theme so the theme can dictate how each list item looks.

Plugin Developer gives a nice SUPORT!

I had looked at a few other plugins, and I ended up choosing this one, because of the fact that you left out all of the bulky crap that comes with other plugins...I don't need 999 options to say "I want a post list in the sidebar, with their respective images".

Possible suggestions:
A textbox for us to put a specific image size into the plugin...or a dropdown that is populated with activated image sizes.
That was the only part that left me wanting, was that I could specify height and width, but I could not pick an image size in which the image was already cropped to that height and width.

This wasn't really worth a star-loss, though, as I downloaded this plugin knowing that it wouldn't do that.

You have an awesome plugin, here.
