Thx Henrique Vianna

  • Added an extra widget configuration option, that allows the user to choose large, small or no icons (defaults to “no icons”, keeping the original plugin behavior)
  • Added a frontend.css file to the ./assets/css/ folder for styling the icons display (each file name was wrapped in an additional “div” tag, to help with the positioning of the icons)
  • Added filetype icon images to ./assets/images/
  • Some tweaks in the i18n functions
  • Added Brazilian Portuguese (pt_BR) translation files
