Co-Authors Plus
[resolved] 2.6 doesn't display in 3.3 (6 posts)

    Upgraded to 2.6 (running on 3.3) and the front end stopped displaying when it reaches co-authors code.

    Back-end still works fine.

    Not having much luck with downgrading. Having another programmer look at the downgrade to see if he can fix it.

    It might not be a problem on your end. The programmer wrote some code that interacted with the plugin and it seems to have gotten erased in the upgrade.

    We didn't change much if anything for displaying the co-authors on the front-end. Let us know what you find

    We changed template-tags.php on our end to display the list of authors (first and last names) for each post with a single command.

    It got overwritten in the upgrade.

    Ah, that makes sense. If you'd like, please describe the type of change you want made and I might be able to suggest doing it in a way that doesn't get blown away on upgrades

    We made a command called coauthors_fullnames() which does the following.
    It counts the number of coauthors in a post and display the byline as follows (Note the positioning of the commas and the 'and'):

    FirstName1 LastName1

    FirstName1 LastName1 and FirstName2 LastName2

    FirstName1 LastName1, FirstName2 LastName2 and FirstName3 LastName3

    FirstName1 LastName1, FirstName2 LastName2, FirstName3 LastName3 and FirstName4 LastName4

    and so on.
