Harry,

Nice Site!

Glad you have been able to utilize the PFD and overcome some of the inherent limitations with elegant workarounds.

1) I'll be adding the ability to add borders at some point. I'd like to say soon, but this projects is (sadly) not my highest priority. I don't even think it'd be very difficult to do, as I already did the 'padding' and the code should be very similar.

2) This, I think I can help with immediately. Nice use of Pipes to perform some RSS cleansing. Basically, the iframe src just needs to have the 'feed' argument URL encoded. There are a number of ways to do this, but the easiest is probably to browse to the 'Test Your Feed' link and enter your feed there (argument free), which results in the following:

...then, add your pfd arguments to the end of that, non encoded...as follows:

...cream%26textinput2%3Dphoto&thumbsize=##&htmlwidgetspacer=##

Hope that helps! Maybe your border overlays won't be necessary for much longer. I have considered parsing the non graphical content out, eventually...also, handling other image types (currently, only jpg source files work)...but, I don't have a time frame on any of it.

Take care!
