not many plugin developers takes time to respond to questions. But pickplugins are one of those few who are still concerned with the development of their software.

almost perfect and so simple!! verry nice plugin. but i want... two option, below post and widget. I add widget by shortcode but it was so big; maybe it is because of my setting. I want two different related post setting. then it will be perfect thing. --------------------- -> I thought like that. but it makes my database strange. my post order was twisted. be careful to install it. if you don't have that problem, then it will be so nice plugin.
