The same happend for me with the projectInfo plugin. This morning I did
an ant local-deploy and the mismatch was gone.

It seems that the plugins have to be locally deployed to work.

Hmm, can you make a screenshot? Maybe it is "just" a css issue.

Can you try on a fresh seed? Just copy the default.fv
from the plugin to your ${project.conf-dir} and modify this file. 

When you want another view for a specific file (e.g. index.html) then
copy the default.fv to your ${project.xdocs-dir} and renamed it to e.g.

For the feeder play around with:
<forrest:property name="feedConfig">
  <feed maxItem="1" descr="false"/>
if you want to change the maxItems displayed.

Add @position="." to the feed to have numeration.

TIA for the feedback
