    when i insert a recipe it always inserts the recipe at the top of the post, not where my cursor was prior to the recipe. Is there a fix for this?
    Thanks

    @2porter - I just checked, and have no problem with inserting a recipe anywhere into the blog post or page with either the visual editor or the html editor.

    NOTE: if you use the visual editor, you MUST take care where your cursor is traveling when you continue to add text to your blog post. The visual editor is very easy to use, but it does strip a fair bit of power from you, the user, to achieve that ease of use.

    Also, and I'll write about this a lot in the near future. Rich snippets are like SEO, except they're there own thing. If you're a blogger, you have had to learn at least a little bit about SEO to reap the benefits. Rich snippets are like that. You don't need to know much, but if you know nothing at all, your options will be constrained.

    Another way to look at it: you can deal with rich snippets by 1. spending time actually learning the technology (it's butt simple, really, it is), or 2. you can spend that *same* time learning a user interface to that technology.

    Again, I'll be writing a lot more about this over the next few months. Rich snippet technology isn't difficult, and it's every bit as important in the long term as learning simple SEO.

    @2porter - quick followup - I'm going to put some whitespace around the recipe on the next release. That might well help you out.

    Tried it again. Must be an explorer issue. Works fine in Firefox but consistently inserts to the top of the post in IE8
    Deactivated all other plugins- no change

    I do get this error message though

    Message: 'postboxes' is undefined
    Line: 17
    Char: 3
    Code: 0

    @2porter - Excellent! This is extremely helpful.

    1. I'll have dig into the IE issue. IE is *always* a problem to support and typically requires special handling. WP is usually pretty good about it, one of the benefits of WP to be sure.

    2. I'd like to release again soon, but not too soon, as I've put out a bunch of incremental releases one after another. If you like, I'd be happy to zip you up the development release and email it to you. Actually, you can pull it down from github anytime you want as well: https://github.com/doolin/hrecipe The download button is upper middle right on the page.

    @2porter -

    * The 0.5.8.4 release has a little bit of padding around the hrecipe section to help IE users. This should also help other people get the hrecipe positioned a bit better.

    * postboxes issue is fixed.
