    At this time I have not added output templates to the plugin, and not sure that I am going to do that any time soon. I might look into it if I think there is enough demand, but so far I haven’t heard anyone else asking for something like this.

    I too would be interested in being able to override the output of the feed from my theme. In particular I would like an option to make using a snippet/excerpt override of the post content optional.

    I have a feed I’m wanting to display where I want the HTML of the feed content displayed as is (As it was very carefully crafted in the feed to be a list of metadata), it is really messed up when turned into an excerpt.

    I have been looking into how I could make this work easily, but haven’t found a good solution as of yet. I am considering adding the ability to create “templates” in the setup area, and then add a field to select a template in the widget.

    Creating templates would be a drag and drop interface to include key elements in any order you want, using a grid type layout. Would this be enough to satisfy what is needed? I’d rather not allow using snippets from themes as those are volatile (meaning if you update a theme, these could be lost). If you have other ideas, please share them.
