[resolved] ?php the_author() gives null as output (2 posts)

    Dear WordPress-specialist,

    In my logs, I get the error:
    PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_author() in /var/www/html/wordpress/wp-rss2.php on line 36

    and RSS readers get stuck, because that field is empty.

    I have a normal WordPress installation, except that I have moved everything to a subdir /wordpress

    My RSS-feed is:
    http://tonsoftime.com/?feed=rss2

    What could be wrong? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    I could resolve this by upgrading to WordPress 2.2. BTW: supposedly due to caching, Google Reader still shows the old situation, but other RSS readers show the correct feed, and, most importantly, the feed validator showed 'success' for the first time.
