    I just downloaded your plugin and I would like to know how can I add a rel= no follow to the links it creates.
    Is there any way to add a pace before the text appears? or to make it bold? I tried putting the html on the “Title for Follow Category Feeds:” field but does not work.

    I would also like to know if there is anyway I can display it with a shortcode or by putting the function somehow inside my code.
    I would like to show somewhere inside the text describing the category for example here: http://www.elcupondedescuento.com/software/panda/
    Inside this:
    or to put some text before the description text of the category

    If you help me out I would be happy to to donate 🙂
    I am not a programmer at all, but I am getting used to make small modifications already.

      Hi Sebastian!
      I’ve pushed an update (version 2.1.3) which allows you to add rel=”nofollow” into links. Please update plugin if you haven’t done it yet. Go to plugin options page and check Add rel=”nofollow” ... I’ll add shortcode and other features when I get some time.

      Let me know if you have any suggestions to improve this plugin.

      Thank you! 🙂

    Alright I learned how to style it using css.
    this is what I used:
    p.follow-cat-feed { !important; font-weight: bold; padding-top:10px; }
    works awesome.

    This is really great. I was wondering if it is at all possible to change where this appears? I would really love for it to appear in the sidebar as a widget, for example.
