Sweet, any possibility of making the item number visible?

Brian, that shouldn't be a problem at all. I'll put it in the next release smiley

I like the widget, it looks nice and runs smooth. However I have problems with your affiliates. I block them. Perhaps an option to turn off your affiliate link? Or look for an alternative. I don't mind affiliate linking but I get stuck when the redirects pass through to

Shipping costs is definitely something I could put in the display. There has also been a request for item ID and I think seller information might be good as well. I'm going to have to have a think about how best to format it all before the next version.

Having studied the API in greater detail, I'm going to be unable to include shipping details and seller information in the results. Version 0.3 will include the item ID, though.

This latest version us really slow! Hopefully that will be something that is fixed in the future. The ability to watch items, either by adding a ebayID or by having the widget login to your account would be nice. Hopefully this will also have a better interface by v1.0smiley keep up the good work
