get_the_author returns URL, no matter what "display name publicly as" is set to.

  1. I've disabled every plugin, and changed to different themes and I think I have isolated this to Thematic.

    Below the title of the post, where by default it would read "By John Doe" I get (for the sake of example) "By"

    I have changed the "Display name publicly as" settings in the WordPress admin and the author name (full, first name, etc) doesn't change. This happens in my child theme and with a plain unaltered thematic install as well.

    Here's the source of the page I am working on:

    <h1 class="entry-title">Smart License Plates: A Very Dumb Idea?</h1>
    <div class="entry-meta">
    <span class="meta-prep meta-prep-author">By </span>
    <span class="author vcard">
    <a class="url fn n" href="" title="View all posts by Steve Lambert"></a></span>
    <span class="meta-sep meta-sep-entry-date"> | </span>
    <span class="meta-prep meta-prep-entry-date">Published: </span>
    <span class="entry-date"><abbr class="published" title="2010-06-25T09:08:18+0000">June 25, 2010</abbr></span>
    <span class="meta-sep meta-sep-edit">|</span>
    <span class="edit"><a href=";post=1873" title="Edit post">Edit</a>
    </span></div><!-- .entry-meta -->

    I'm using Thematic & Wordpress 3.0.1

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  2. Hi slambert,

    Try grabbing the latest revision from the svn. I believe that the issue you're experiencing has been resolved. come back and let me know if this solves your problem.

  3. I believe that fixed it. Thanks. Can I put a +1 in on switching from SVN to git?
