WordPress strikes again

Note the ugly truncated titles in my “Current Bestsellers” widget. It wasn’t that way yesterday, and I didn’t do anything to change it. WordPress did it, of course. They’ve changed the Top Posts & Pages widget to enable the addition of images. Another “improvement” for us that WordPress was neither proud enough of nor considerate enough to tell us about. Even in the forum discussion about the change, the WP “Happiness Engineer” doesn’t seem to understand what’s happened. It’s blogger feartheseeds (aka Gabriel) who points out the change in the widget. Who knows, I might like the new image options. But if I decide not to use them, I want my all-text widget to look as it always has — just like the Recent Posts (“Fresh Ink”) widget right below it. And even if I decide to use images, I still don’t want my titles truncated.
