Enhancement Request - Custom widget with similar functionality to TopNews widget

In ICEC, the TopNews widget uses images and text from a blog post. i.e. similar to a top news story in a newspaper: Image + Headline + Text.

When there is an image in a blog that is used by the TopNews widget this works fine. However, if the blog contains no image, but contains an attachment, the widget displays a blank white square next to the text.

This is an enhancement request to have a custom widget that works similarly to the TopNews widget but will not display an image if there is no image in the associated blog.

    you don't need a custom Widget for that, you can customize that with 3 lines of JavaScript. There is an event triggered when the widget is fully rendered. Listen to that event  and hide the image based on the "blank image" path and show the textContainer in 100% width.

    If there are questions i can help you with that.
