Needs to support theme font styles for "+NAME" in title (2 posts)

    Great concept, but unfinished.

    The display does not use the secondary text style to match other subtitle / heading fonts in a theme, and the +Name (e.g., "+Andrew" lable is in a body-text font style, large sized, and bold.

    Looks graphically bad.

    Also, needs a "Title" field, that is optional, to allow the user to say "About Me", or another string, like "My Background", or "My Bio" which users will want to customize.

    Picture lable should suggest to use the user's "Gravatar"...

    I had to turn it off. Post an email address, and I'll send a screen shot of the design issues.

    I agree with what you say about the design issues. But my problem goes further. The resulting pages check out all right in the rich snippets testing tool, in that they 'verify' fine - but no photo appears, not even in the testing tool. I have spent hours on this today and have no idea where I'm going wrong. I'd really appreciate it if someone could take a look.
