    - Thumbnail dimensions: to change the size of the thumbnails in pixels, replace the 75px value.
    - Summary length: you can control the the length of the summary (in characters) by changing the 110 value from var randomposts_chars=110;
    - Post info: if you want to hide the post date and comment count change 'yes' from var randomposts_details='yes'; to 'no';
    - Font Size for Posts Titles and Summary: to modify the font size for the post snippet modify the 11px value and for the posts title, the 12px value;
