Feedwordpress: New Syndicated Authors aren't creating new user accounts (2 posts)

    Under Syndicated Author Settings, I have 'Authors who haven’t been syndicated before' selected to 'will have a new author account created for them' and this is not happening. The Syndicated authors are in the feed, but they are not showing up as new authors.

    Everything is attributed to the Administrator account.

    I also have 'Posts from aggregator feeds:' selected as 'Give the original source of the post as the source, not the aggregator.'

    At one point I did have this working but decided against the new authors and I deleted them. Now no matter what I do, I can't get new authors to generate. I have deleted the feeds and all posts associated with them, and even when I add the feeds back in with syndicated sources that were never used before, those new posts are STILL attributed to the administrator.

    I finally found a solution to this. Your RSS feed must have the author as <author>New York Times </author>, not <source url="http://nytimes.com">New York Times</source>
