We like the premise behind this plug-in, particularly its attempt to provide a solution that doesn't require modifications to the theme templates.
Unfortunately, we've had an issue with the plug-in that is preventing its use. When we add a byline for someone, say Jim Smith, and then publish the post, the author meta data visible under the post title is something like:
Jim Smith">Jim Smith — May 16, 2013
When I view the source code, I can see how the associated data was processed by the loop:
<span class="the-author"><a href="http://blogurl.com/author/webmaster/" title="<a href=" http:="" blogurl.com="" byline="" jim-smith="" "="" rel="tag">Jim Smith</a>"><a href="http://blogurl.com/byline/jim-smith/" rel="tag">Jim Smith</a> — </span>
I have not been able to determine where the extra <" is coming from. Do you have any ideas?
We've had no issues during installation, and are running on WordPress 3.5.1. We'd be delighted to get the plug-in working, as we're hoping to use this exact functionality in an upcoming blog.
