The if_article_author tag is a conditional tag and always used as an opening and closing pair, like this…

    …conditional statement…

The tag will execute the contained statement if the author name associated with a particular article matches the value of the name attribute. Should be used in an ‘article’ type form.

Note: The name attribute requires an author’s login name not their real name.


Tag will accept the following attributes (case-sensitive):

Comma-separated list of author names.
Default: unset (i.e. any author at all).


Example 1: Display some text dependent on an article’s author

    <txp:author />
    <txp:if_article_author name="admin">

Displays article author name, then displays the text “(Administrator)” if the article was written (posted) by the author admin.
