Link author

On this page:


<txp:link_author />

The link_author tag is a single tag that Textpattern will replace with the author’s name associated with the current link in a linklist. It can only be used inside <txp:linklist />.


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

link="link type (boolean)"
Whether to hyperlink the author or not.
Values: 0 (no) or 1 (yes).
Default: 0.
section="section name"
Direct any linked author name to the nominated section instead of to the default (front) page.
Default: unset.
If set to 1, the linked author name will direct users to an author list in the current section, otherwise author list from all sections is displayed.
Values: 0 (no, all sections) or 1 (yes, this section only).
Default: 0.
Whether to display the author’s real name or login name.
Values: 0 (login name) or 1 (real name).
Default: 1.
