Developers, we thought of you too. The plugin comes pre-packaged with support for adding news items from RSS feeds, Twitter, Facebook, recent posts and recent comments out of the box, but you can take advantage of the plugin’s flexible framework to register your own data sources. None of the bundled skins doing it for you? Creating your own is as easy as creating a CSS file and registering it with the plugin.
