[resolved] Change to author JSON handling in API (2 posts)

    The Mendeley API seems to have changed the way it handles authors, but this the code in the plugin. They have changed from returning authors as a string to returning them as a JSON array of 'forename' and 'surname'. This is not yet in the API documentation, but the bug on it has been closed: https://mendeleyapi.16bugs.com/projects/6677/bugs/193954

    Version: Mendeley Plugin 0.6.5 on WordPress 3.2.1

    I haven't done thorough testing, but fixed my installation by changing:

    Line 343:
    $grpval=$grpval[0]->surname . $grpval[0]->forename;

    Line 393:
    $authors .= $author_arr[$i]->forename . " " . $author_arr[$i]->surname;

    I haven't tested yet to see if the editor listing is also changed (for line 401).

    The issue is resolved in v0.6.7 of the plugin.
