    Sorry to hear that. I would suggest you sack my plugin and go with addthis. Hard code your introduction in applicable theme files.

    Now that you're just getting started with a blog, you'll find out that lots of things are going to change while you go on. After the launch, if dynamic introduction is still highly valuable to you, you'll probably find another plugin that works for you. In that case, maybe you could post it here as well, in order to help others who may be having the same issue as you.

    Hi Jussi,
    I've just installed the plugin. The only issue I'm having is adjusting the content text size. Everything appears as H2 and H3 sizes.
    I have entered font-size:80%; into Style for content but it makes no difference.

    I tested the font-size:80%; in Style for header which works fine.

    Can I edit the code and add a font size tag to the relevant text? And if so, how?

    Thanks

    I am using the Blog Introduction plugin together with the Social Sharing Toolkit. It looks like the blog-intro is being handled as a copy of my last blog-post, and is showing social share buttons for that blog-post. I don't want that!

    Is there a way to make the blog-intro not behave as a copy of my last blog-post? Since I see no other way around this problem at the moment.

    Nico, that's a known bug which I don't have time to fix, unfortunately. Hope you find a workaround.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll just leave it for now then. And good to know that it's already a known bug :).

  7. Hi - I added this plugin and changed the slug to my "about" page. It did not give me the appearance I hoped for, so I deactivated and deleted the plugin. However, it seems that my "about" page is now corrupted, because any sub-pages (ex: about/history) come up as 404 errors. I had to change the about page slug to "aboutus" and then the subpages work fine. However, I would like to know if there is something that can be done to make the "about" slug work to allow subpages again.

    Hi! I tried to replicate this problem but didn't succeed. The plugin does not change/add/modify existing functionality or content, so unfortunately I'm clueless how to fix your problem. Maybe some other plugin is the culprit? Hope you get it fixed!
