Really simple replacement for txp:author. If you define a section with ‘section’ attribute you’ll have the author name linking to a page that has the name and surname of the author as title, in the section you defined (i.e.: section: ‘authors’ or ‘contributors’).

Useful if you have a magazine with a section for your authors. The plugin offers immediate link encoded along TXP url titles conventions (’-’ instead of ‘+’ for spaces, lowercase).

Important: Can’t work in messy mode, as far as I know, because it relies on author name for url, not author ID.


section, optional

If not set, the name will be displayed without link.

You should explain more. Any url? Are the articles assigned to the right author? This is working for me and for a couple of client sites, so I’m not sure about your problem.

Better discussed on the forum thread, anyway.
