    this is so cool!!!… but I have a question: it only shows the last 5 posts. is there a possibility for me to choose which 5 I want? I mean, I update my blog daily, and I named this widget 5 TOP RATED POSTS. But in order for this to be true, I should be able to choose the top 5.<br />Many thanks in advance.
