First, thanks for the great contribution to WordPress.
In testing Lift Search, it seems that the author name is not being sent to CloudSearch. Here's an example of a result from the CloudSearch dashboard:
post_title: Couple Refused Emergency Contraception Because of Pharmacist's Personal Beliefs
The post author id is populated, but not the name, but I need to be able to search on the author name field.
We sometimes have coauthors for posts on our site, so we use the Coauthors Plus plugin, and that may be interfering.
Can you point me in the right direction to find where the post_author_name is populated by the plugin so I can try to figure out how to fix it? Or any thoughts you might have would be great.
