    When I use the plugin, instead of the page displaying the authors name, it displays all the code that should be on the page, such as this: <a href="http://newsroom.seattletimes.com/picturethis/byline/bettina-hansen/" rel="tag">Bettina Hansen</a>

    Here is an example: http://newsroom.seattletimes.com/picturethis/2013/12/06/a-breath-of-cold-air/

    Any idea how a help it perform correctly?

    Thanks!

    This happens when the theme uses some custom code for displaying authors/author links.

    If you can find this chunk of code in your theme, you will have to replace it with the WP function the_author()

    Hope this sheds some light.

    Thank you! That took care of it.

    Apologies for an unrelated question on the same thread, but is their an option to insert the word "and" appropriately into the display? Or are you planning on building that in?

    Again, thanks so much. Both for your work on the plugin and for being responsive in this thread.

    Check out Dan's solution for inserting "and" in a series of names.

    Hi there - I am having the same issue that dgawlowski was having but I cannot find how to fix it using the Genesis framework. Is there any way you can help? Here is where it shows: http://wpdev.pasadenajournal.com/women-get-inspired/ - I would love to be able to fix this and would gladly send you a donation if you can help.

    Harmony, send me a note at matt.dulin@gmail.com - I would need to look at some of the theme files to give you a good fix. Are you using a Genesis child theme of your own?

    Hi Matt, I sent you an email - I didn't see your response until just now - We had a bit of an emergency in our family and it took me away from dev work for a couple of weeks.
