"Internal" WP user name shown to world when browsing that user's posts
|Reported by:||wPcoMuser||Owned by:|
- Create WP user INTERNAL_NAME
- That WP user then selects a screen name SCREEN_NAME, and selects to only display SCREEN_NAME to the world.
- The WP blog still shows that user's posts under http:/www.xxx.com/wp/authors/INTERNAL_NAME/[post], when a third party clicks to see that user's posts, the directory that is displayed is INTERNAL_NAME.
This happens with all themes, no plug-ins active. Seems to be internal to WP. I have seen it on versions from ~2.7 through 3.0 final.
I consider it a bug because it stops people from using more complex user names for security, although I appreciate whether it's a bug or a feature can be debated.
I searched and could find no similar bug.
