    Three requests for updates to this widget...

    1. Make widget more responsive, so that it automatically scales from 4 down to 1 column as the browser scales down, like the instagram photo feed widget.

    2. Add in the option to add custom buttons for "Load More" and "Read More".

    3. Figure out a way to optimise images, uploading only optimised images seems to be a bit beyond one of my clients, therefore I cannot use the widget on her homepage as it slows the page loading time down to a ridiculously slow speed. Is there a way that it could optimise the images?

    Sean, I am away from my office at the moment and cannot double check to be sure, but I am almost positive the widget does number one and two already.
    I was just checking our demo on the smallest size and it drops to one column. Remember that if you are trying to scale a widget by shrinking the browser (not the best way) you will need to refresh the browser to see the real time version. When a devise calls up the screen size, a refresh isn't necessary, but in a preview Muse doesn't know what size you are asking for.
    The 'Load More' text can be changed inside the widget panel.
    as far as optimizing images, that is really a Tumblr and Muse issue. The widget is mainly a conduit to bring the Tumblr information into Muse. Not sure if that can be changed.
    Hope this helps

    The only way I could find to make the widget scale down the amount of columns was to create multiple versions of the widget across the breakpoints and hide/show the different versions in different breakpoints. It would be nice to place a single widget that works across all breakpoints. Thus eliminating render blocking Javascript?

    I know I can change the text/colour/buttons etc on the widget, but it would be nice to be able to add custom buttons, such as state buttons with rollover effects to control the Load More etc.

    I thought image optimisation would be the posters responsibility, but generally anything to improve the page speed impact of the widget would be greatly appreciated.

    I just used the widget on a clients homepage, with the widget Google Insights gave my desktop speed a rating of 44/100. When moved to it's own webpage I upped the speed of my homepage to 95/100.
