    Is this possible? It would make this almost perfect plugin perfect.

    If you're confident enough with editing the plugin directly, you can alter this yourself.

    You can do this by using the WordPress plugin editor (Plugins -> Editor -> select Trackable Social Share Icons from the dropdown menu). If you do this, make sure that [wordpress directory]/wp-content/plugins/trackable-social-share-icons/index.php is writeable (chmod 666).

    Change this line:
    'email.png' => array('url'=>'mailto:?subject=Check out %url%', 'popup'=>'false'),

    to something like this:
    'email.png' => array('url'=>'mailto:?subject=News article&body=Have a look at %url%', 'popup'=>'false'),

    However, I wholeheartedly agree with you that it should be possible to customise the settings a little more. Examples:
    - In the icon + text option, the text should be customisable: so instead of just having "Facebook", you should be able to write your own text like "Share on Facebook".
    - The output of the Twitter button ought to be customisable: so instead of just having the format This is the title of the post http://www.thisisthe.url/of/the/post, you could have This is the title of the post - http://short.url/123456 (via @sitetwitteraccount).

    Most of these sorts of customisations can be done if you're comfortable with editing plugins manually, but it would be useful to have these as actual features of the plugin itself.

    gloriagoldrea - almost!?!?!? Haha, thank you for your kind words regarding the plugin :)

    Cyril - thank you for replying to Andrea, and for your feedback as well. I can't make any promises regarding feature implementation, but I promise we'll keep working on it until it is the "perfect plugin." :)
