Default Category for Multiple Authors and Author List (5 posts)

    I have a multiple Author Blog and have 2 questions

    1) Is it possible to have a different Default Category for different authors when they log in and write a post?

    2) I display the author list on my sidebar but the names of authors show up as their login names or first names. How can we get to show the "Display Name" selected in the author profile?

    #1. Check Plugins/Restriction maybe the Limit Categories or Category Visibility might help.

    #2. Check the show_fullname parameter in Template_Tags/wp_list_authors

    Thank you. About the Author's list, I didn't find in the documentation where you could print the Author's "Display Name" selection using the wp_list_authors funtion. Is there a way to do this? The function accomodates first name, full name, last name, loging name, but not the selected "Display name" from the drop down box in the author profile page.

    Gues you could look at Kaf's All Authors code to help you:

    Then you can print anything you want about authors but it's more complex then using the wp_list_authors template.

    That's horrible. wp_list_authors should use the "display name" by default. If someone selects what they want their name displayed as, why should wp_list_authors circumvent that?

    I'd consider this a bug.
