If you have had the disfortunate experience of finding this plugin on your website, it is a security risk. Do not install it! not maintained for half a decade!!!

Easy to use and does the job perfectly. No frills or unneeded functionality - exactly what I was looking for.

Hi I like that this is almost what I want. It seems like the pix setting for dimensions are not working correctly. When I put 500x350 it makes the box 632x376. Also huge negative space in the box. Also the right side of page function is not working very well. It could be my theme. The concept is great, just needs some improvement for user front end experience adjustments

The plugin is oki. However, there are only some issues when you choose to place a widget in the bottom of the right side, so it disappears from the screen of a smart phone so it's not mobile responsive. As we all know, many people used their smart phone to go online so this plugin needs to be worked on. So, therefore, I can only give it 3 stars
