Display author name in permalink URL with a dash separator

    Display author name in permalink URL with a dash separator.

    If I use authorname on my permlinks they look like this:

    /mikeschinkel/foo/

    I would like them to look like this:

    /mike-schinkel/foo/

    You could handle backward compatibility by allowing to specify like so:

    /%firstname%-%lastname%/foo/

    One suggestion is that you take a look at the template tags in the codex before making all these suggestions.

    In this case the "Author" tags.

    This has nothing to do with template tags and everything to do with permalink construction based on variables offered. (See: Options > Permalinks in the admin interface or Using Permalinks on the Codex.)

    The currently offered author variable squishes the author's name down without the use of hyphens, which is undesirable and the core of this request.

    Always act nice just in case you're a jackass.

    My bad. This person posted several ideas here that were clearly theme related and I obviously didn't read this one very well before replying.
