    3. Thanks for this widget... works very nicely! I have been using the jQuery version, and suggest one improvement. The 'ignore current URL' feature currently does not work if the page is referenced by something other than a 'naked' URL, e.g. via an RSS feed (in which case it is followed by '?parameters'), or via the 'read more' link (in which case it is followed by '#more').

      I have 'fixed' this by using the following code to generate a suitable current URL:

      var currentURL = ((location.href.toLowerCase().split('?'))[0].split('#'))[0];

      This is a bit quick-and-dirty, because it assumes a 'standard' blogger URL, with no '#' or '?' symbols anywhere else in the path, but works fine.

      Cheers, and thanks again for the great tips and code.
