  1. How to seprate two parameters in this widget
    class=myicons&link=false OR class=myicons link=false OR class=myicons, link=false


  2. Something is wrong with cateogry icons on my site. I recently added a new category – modern fantasy. I gave it an icon, modernfantasy.gif. However, when I put it on the sidebar, it uses the wrong icon (fantasy.gif) and places the icon in the middle of the text. Look on the right sidebar under genres

    How do I resolve this issue?

  3. Funny, I went to Appearances -> Widgets but there isn’t a widget for this plug-in. Is it available only with the PRO version?

    Thanks in advance,
