Syntax

<txp:image_author />

The image_author tag is a single tag that Textpattern will replace with the author’s name associated with the current image in an images list. It can only be used inside <txp:images />.

Attributes

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

Whether to hyperlink the author or not.
Values: 0 (no) or 1 (yes).
Default: 0.
