== Frequently Asked Questions ==
This is in the early stages of Development. Currently it is only able to set the category, set the number of posts displayed, and change the css from the style sheet. Further improvements will be made in the future. I am still learning how to create an interface to work with this. Once learned, I intend to create a Dashboard option for Customizing the CSS, Setting custom Image Size, and possibly doing a preview feature.
