  1. Great plugin.

    But it would be nice if the current author could be highlighted in an easy way.

    The core widget for displaying a category menu does help with the class current-cat for the active category.

    1. Good idea, I’ll see if it’s easy to add, though there are pages that don’t belong to a specific author.

  2. Hi Gavriel,

    I noticed recently that—no matter what I insert in the “exclude”-field—I cannot get rid of authors in the widget. I tried the ID, the username and the full name in or without double quotes. I always cleared my browser-cache after changes, but nothing happens. I’m using version 2.4.1, any suggestions on your side? And…

    …many thanks for developing this plugin!
