  1. I was looking at your code and seems easy to implement but I’m not exactly a php coder.
    On the loop just add a variable that doesn’t get always the first user id. Or maybe creating multiple instance of the widget.

    • Yes it’s not that hard to do it. Using the user id will make it work. I just currently don’t have the free time to upgrade it. I might do it sometimes next week. Thanks for your interest in the plugin.

  2. Nice widget but, how can I set it up to show more than one user?

    If I add it two times with two stack users it shows always just one user answers.
