Das Plugin läuft auch mit der aktuellsten Version von WP. Man wird vergebens nach einem Widget oder Einstellmöglichkeiten suchen, es gibt keine und man benötigt auch keine. Das Plugin erzeugt lediglich im bestehenden “Letzte-Kommentare”-Widget links die Anzeige der Avatare. Eine persönliche Gestaltung kann man über die styles.css vornehmen.
