Include author in exported text (4 posts)

    Is there a way I could include the author in the exported text?

    The last name comes in the name of the file, but our copy editors need first and last names and it would be nice if it could just be included in the text automatically from WordPress' author field.

    Yes, this is something that has been brought up before.
    I have been kicking around the idea of adding a settings page with these sort of template options.

    In the meantime, if you're handy with PHP, you could just edit taggedtext.php
    It works just like any other WordPress template file and can use all regular template tags.

    I think I have it working now.

    Thanks!

    Let me know if you add the settings page. That sounds awesome.

    Love this plugin by the way. Makes our life a lot easier.

    A settings page would be wonderful!

    BTW, I found a fix for an issue. Using a mac, indesign CS3, I couldnt place exported txt files without the tags showing up. I edited the plugin to write ANSI WIN rather than MAC at the top of the file and it now works fine.
