    I’ll certainly put it on the list. Although, you realize that when you combine multiple rich-snippets the available space is divided? For example if you have add a rating (stars) the author image will shrink. I learned this first hand.

    Btw, some developers ask money for this kind of plugin: http://www.forumspecialoffers.com/showthread.php?356-snippets-magic#post3670

    Yeah,

    I have actually thought about spinning off a Pro version… hardly anyone donates to the plugin… Even though a lot of people seem to like it.

    I will definitely be a Pro user.

    I have another sugestion then, for the Pro version 🙂

    Instead of “Prepend URL Text” and “Append URL Text”

    User to directly input full url ex: http://www.socialnet.com/username

    and: http://www.socialnet.com/username/rss-feed

    Then your plugin will output a global rss feed of all authors accounts that can be inserted in a widget or whatever 😀

    A social stream … this one will beat few premium plugins out there I seen on codecanion and wpmudev.

    If you consider this idea ok let me know, I want to email you.

    Sounds interesting! I plan to make a future version where even the built in icons can be edited. Those, like the current custom icons, can have both prepend and append info left blank and then the user can enter anything. This is similar to how the website icon works.

    The reason I give the admin the ability to prepend and append the user provided portion is for security. It keeps users, for sites that have more users than just the admin, from linking from that site to something that is undesirable.

    Can you describe your idea of a social stream in more detail? Is it more than a widget that lists the users out?

    You can start an email conversation with me by following this link:

    Great ! The global RSS can be used anywhere, in a widget or with any autoblog plugin to post on a separate ‘social’ category(that can also be displayed in a widget). Or can be for each user in his Bio box, like the last 5 social titles from the author. That will give them some interaction.

    About the icons editing by the users, to be straight, I fear that icons being unsuitable more than what could they link the icons 😀

    However if we let them post on our blogs, we already assumed the responsibility.
