Dear Sirs,

I find the following problem:

When using ~~~ItemAuthor~~~ in my templates for rss2html.php it does not show anything, a problem related to the author information in the feed being as <dc:creator> field and not <author> field.

I suppose you should have solved this problem as one can find in rss2html.php:

// Revision 2.2 2005/08/16 19:53:15 housley

// Add the ~~~ItemAuthor~~~ subsitution that uses first <author> and then

// <dc:creator> for its contents

But certainly it does not work, as it has been pointed out before by other users (see for example:


I would really appreciate if you could give me a solution for this probem.

Best regards,

José Ignacio López

Unfortunately, that behavior had to be removed in a later revision, because the <author> field is defined to be an email address, but the <dc:creator> doesn't have to be, so non-email addresses in the <author> field were causing problems.

See the update in the FeedForAll_XMLParser.inc.php file:

// Revision 2.27 2007/04/06 11:18:03 housley
// Since <dc:creator> isn't specified to be an email, we can't move it to
// <author>
