Из замечаний: Рекомендую в настройки вынести настройку ширины сайдбара, у меня например он 300 пикселей, и превьюхи размеров 330 выделялись из общей массы виджетов. Поправил в файле плагина… Так же вопрос: Подскажите правильную конструкцию для вызова виджета в конце статьи для вывода в мобильной версии сайта, ибо в адаптивном шаблоне нет сайдбара. 🙂
