#9831 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Add a filter to allow the user to show his/her email address in feeds

Description

Currently, the author email address is always not displayed in the feeds. However, there are regular demands that authors want their email addresses to be displayed in order to let readers contact them. In addition, plugins can't seem to do this.

My suggestion is to add an "Show email address in feeds" option under User Profile\Contact Info\Email and add some conditional statements in the feeds.

Feedback from the core developers is requested.

Where would an extra hook be needed? I add the email in my mediacaster plugin for use by itunes, and had no issues whatsoever.

I am not sure how to remove the existing <dc:creator> element in RSS 2 and <author> element in Atom 1.0.

<dc:creator>Author Name</dc:creator> in RSS 2 should be changed to <author>Author Email (Author Name)</author> while <author><name>Name</name></author> in Atom should be changed to <author><name>Name</name><email>Email</email></author>.

My original idea was to add a field called "show_email" in the wp_users table, a function to read that field and function to display the address in feeds. Adding a filter doesn't seem to be enough.

#5 @Denis-de-Bernardy

if the needed filter is added, a plugin could be written that does the same thing using a user_meta.
