seeing user ID, not full name as author of stories


Looking at my stories, it says "contributed by" and lists my user Id instead of my full name. My full name is filled in on my profile.

Do I have to change a setting somewhere to make the user's full name show up on contibuted content?

Do I have to manually switch all the contributedby_user variables to contributedby_fullname in my templates?

Looks like archivestorytext.thtml, featuredstorytext.thtml, and storytext.thtml so far in the themes directory. If there's and easier way, let me know.

At the moment, I'm afraid, you will have to change all those variable names. We're working on making that a config option. Or rather, the config option is already there, it just doesn't do a lot yet:
PHP Formatted Code
// Used by COM_displayName to return Members's Full Name else username  (1 = yes, 0 = no)
$_CONF['show_fullname'] = 0;

Switch that to = 1 and see if it helps (probably not a lot).

If you're feeling adventurous, you could download the CVS version and try it there - it's working a lot better there.

bye, Dirk
