%%name%% isn't replaced by author name (16 posts)

    My wordpress blog has multiple authors, and each have their author page at: http://mysite.com/author/name

    When using this plugin, Author Page titles show up as
    %%name%% Author at %%sitename%% %%page%%

    where %%name%% is in fact the text and not the author's name. All tags work fine on all pages. The %%name%% tag even works on Post pages but not on the author page. Please Help!

    Same goes for %%category%% and %%tag%%. And on single WP installs as well, not only on multisite.

    My install isn't a multisite, it's single. It just has a lot of authors. %%category%% and %%tag%% are working fine for me. Only %%name%% gives problems.

    Going back to previous version fixes the problem. I suggest you do so if you haven't had any issues with 1.2.8.5 - like the ones mentioned in the changelog for 1.2.8.6. Waiting for the correct version.

    Just to +1 this and to say that going back to v.1.2.8.5 does fix any issues. Will wait for .7
