#1531 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

the_author filter not implemented

Reported by: McShelby Owned by: markjaquith
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5.2
Component: Template Keywords: filters the_author bg|commit bg|has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


A filter for the_author isn't implemented. By this it is impossible to create valid RSS feeds for me because my user name contains a german umlaut and is obviously stored "as is" in the database. It's neither encoded by e.g ö nor by ö

Nevertheless the file default-filters.php also thinks such a filter is implemented cause in line 83 it tries to set this filter to

add_filter('the_author', 'ent2ncr', 8);

which would exactly do what I want to. There also may be other template tags which may have the same problem as the_author.

McShelby, try the patch I uploaded. it adds "the_author" filter to get_the_author()

Let me know if it breaks anything else.
