This plugin can show a NEW indicator image above or below the article title, but, I think it should be displayed just in the same line as the article title, this is the word "before" or "after" means!
Owner's reply: You are right; I changed it to above and below in version 1.2.1.

Nice plugin

The plugin is good but it could be nice if added to the title on list view page.
Owner's reply: Thanx!
I have tried to add it to the title, but the titles are 'escaped', so instead of showing the GIF-image you see the name of the GIF-image.
May be someone has an idea how to solve that without a templete override??
