Why Legacy Widget shows nothing?

Legacy Widget does not show the old messages. you need to post something new into the group/channel and wait for 5 minutes for the messages to appear. If you are too impatient to wait for the results 😄, then open the URL given under Tip! (below the instructions) in your browser.

Wow, that was super easy and quick. Took me less than 10 minutes from downloading the plugin to a perfectly working widget in the sidebar on my site. Not a single issue encountered. Congratulations to the developer of this mighty plugin. Where can I support your great work?The only thing I miss is a button to quickly move [back] to the latest post. I never know which way to scroll.

The developer coded an additional feature for me and went above and beyond. Can not recommend the plugin and the support that comes with it enough.
