  1. Hey there everyone,

    I like this plugin alot. But I can’t get it to work with thesis(thesis 1.6). Anyone have it already working? I would love to know how you did it.

  2. Hi,
    I amended your plugin to pick up a custom field called ‘image’ where there were no attachments to a page.

    if($attachments == true) :
    foreach($attachments as $id => $attachment) :
    $img = wp_get_attachment_image_src($id, ‘medium’);
    $img[0] = get_post_meta($the_parent, “image”, true );

  3. Some other suggestions for things you could do quite easily:
    – add the possibility of randomizing the post items
    – add the possibility to select posts by tag other than cat

    Good job! 🙂

  4. Hey there!

    Your plug-in is perfect for what I am trying to do, my only issue is how to assign content to each section of the accordion. Also, I need help with getting it to show up. I am left with just the shortcode on all of my pages even when the plugin is activated! HELP!

    Yes, this is a bug the title of the widget is part of the plugin options and when you update it on settings it delete the title. I’ll fix it. For now you can first fix the settings and after change the name of the widget.

  6. Awesome; thank you for this great plug-in! Using WP 2.8.6, the widget title seems to disappear each time I make a change in settings. Any way to make it persist?
