Add option to link to all posts from widget title

Please consider adding an option to have the link to all posts in the most natural place there is - the widget title, as discussed in this thread...

Display custom Taxonomies (and maybe categories, tags & custom fields too)

What i'm searching for now specifically is the ability to display a taxonomy term under the post title.. I'm using this in a job listings site I don't know how much work this would be.. but if you can do this quick i'm willing to pay for it :)

Include specific post IDs

This is a fantastic plugin, and it would be extremely helpful if it was possible to specify a list of specific post IDs to show, comma separated, i.e. only show these posts.

I will think about this idea... I don't want that widget form will have many options. It confuses new users of my plugin. Widget form must be very simple and understandable.

As workaround you can create new posts category, add needed posts to it and select that category in widget.

Link to author's local page

Rather than linking to the author's website (defined in their user profile), I'd like to be able to link to the author's page on my website (with all the posts they've written locally). It'd be extra-great if this were an option, or toggle.

Add Infinite Scroll or Pagination option!

Hey guys, I think your plugin is amazing, especially with the templating flexibility it offers. The ONE THING that I think is missing is an ability to add an infinite scroll (very modern and popular) or a way to paginate all of the posts so one...

would be great if it can control the excerpt length

At present, it retrieves almost all of the excerpt of a post which is a bit too long. would be great if it can control the excerpt length

Output author of post in template

Just like how you can output the title using [frp_title], I'd like to be able to output the author of the post using [frp_author] within the widget.
