TOPIC: Feature Pro shows author, not alias

Feature Pro shows author, not alias 2 months, 3 weeks ago #322

Just purchased the Featured Items Pro and love it. When it is set to show author, it shows Admin and I see no setting for it to show Author Alias. We publish short stories that are posted by admin but attributed to the correct author using the alias function. Can the module pick up the alias?

Re: Feature Pro shows author, not alias 2 months, 3 weeks ago #323

It's not an option in the module at the moment, but you can do this with a very small modification to the code. You need to edit the module file helper.php, line 419, from:-

$lists[$i]->author = JText::_('WRITTENBY').' '.$row->name;


$lists[$i]->author = JText::_('WRITTENBY').' '.$row->created_by_alias;

That will work fine. Thank you, Susan.
