  1. Hi,
    Thank you very much for this beautiful widget.
    Can we put a space or “-” between the avatars and the author names to increase readability on “List Style With Avatars” Style, please?

  2. Hello,

    The INCLUDE list doesn’t work. I’ve tried user IDs and usernames, and the authors list remains empty. Any idea why?

  3. Does this work with the “WP User Avatar” Plugin? I am using this instead of Gravatar, and your widget isn’t showing up at all, and I’m wondering if this is why. If it doesn’t work with it, how can I make it work? Thanks!

  4. I can’t seem to get the exclude option to work. I’m adding a comma separated list of user ids but the users still show in the widget. Is there anything I’m missing?

  5. hello gavriel,

    thank you for the excellent widget.
    is it possible to show only users with the user role= frontend vendor and who has post at the category download ?

    how i change the limit from 99 to show all?

    thanks for help.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!
