    Thanks for the great plugin!

    There's only 1 thing I'm missing and that's a role-based author slug.
    role=editor ->author_base = 'editor'
    role=author ->author_base = 'author'
    role=member ->author_base = 'member'
    etc., which would give this:
    http://example.com/author/johndoe/
    http://example.com/author/janedoe/
    http://example.com/member/joeblogs/
    http://example.com/member/janeblogs/
    (which would then lead to their profile page)
    I have tried numerous things myself to no avail...

    I can't say for sure, as I've not looked into it, but I believe this is beyond the scope of my idea of the plugin. Rewrite rules in WP are tricky, and I don't believe that I could meet your request without diving into the depths of WP rewrite code. Again, I've not looked into this, so nothing is set in stone. I will keep it in mind though.

    Thanks for using the plugin!
