Here is my site.
the design is :-(
but I work on it.

I use the same way you are. for every day i use a new entry with the
"+" option in the posts.

But it look diferent as yours. Maybe its a CSS formatet. I bookmark
your site, and next days i look at your CSS-Style. I hope i found the
code.


We have 2 or 3 new posts every day on the first page, so its not easy
to test a plugin.
At the moment I work on the "Another Wordpress Classifieds Plugin" - I
must translate everything to german.
i hope the next update of the plugin in is international. The author sad so.
