    Hey thanks Anna, I’m glad it’s working for you.

    Both of those things are on our “todo” list 🙂

    +1 for the metric/imperial system switcher.

    And just to clarify, what I’m really hoping for is what I would call a “view switcher” (as opposed to a converter).

    When I develop and test a recipe, I create two versions – one metric, the other imperial – each with “friendly” measurements and directions tailored appropriately to the system. The only way I’ve found to publish both versions online (each with microdata tags) is to create a completely separate post for the “alternative” version. With the result that, even though they are in fact the SAME recipe for the EXACT SAME THING… the database thinks they’re different. Which means page hits and “Likes” are counted separately, even though they should really be aggregated.

    Meanwhile… it’s anyone’s guess what Google thinks the alternative pages are, but I can’t help thinking that this method probably creates a serious “duplicate content” problem in terms of SEO.

    In my IDEAL world, then… I would be able to create ONE recipe with two different VIEWS (i.e., the metric version being one view, and the imperial version being the other). In some obvious location – perhaps next to the “print” button – there would be a nice little link that says something like “Click Here for Imperial Version.” Naturally, I would like to be able to choose the wording of this text myself. And of course I would like to be able to set the DEFAULT view in the plugin settings, but have the option to change it on a per post basis as well.

    Finally (icing on the cake here), irrespective of which view I set as MY default, I would LOVE it if my readers could have the option to set a cookie or something so that their computers can remember THEIR preferred setting.

    Thanks for listening!
