    I use your excelent WP plugin (congrats!) on my website but i have a question regarding authorship vs publisher data.

    I configured both, and did all Google instructins for linking, but at the end i get authorship in all pages except the homepage and the publisher data in the homepage and in none of the other website pages/posts.

    Is this right?

    Fist of all: Thank U Yoast for your amazing plugin!!

    About this topic, I'm having the same exact trouble in both my websites.

    Hope it will be fixed soon but in the meantime I found a "home-made fix" that works fine for me: When I inserted muy Google ID I added ?rel=author at the end (something like this: https://plus.google.com/xxxxxxxxxx?rel=author)

    By doing this, although in the homepage the plugin shows the publisher meta Google finds the author link anyway. I tested with the Google's richsnippets tool and worked ok.

    You can try this and check if it works properly for you using the http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

    Hope I was helpful and to hear from Yoast.
