    Currently not possible, but something I can add.

    I can see it being valuable if you have a site with multiple authors. Of course if you set up your theme properly, you can always link to the author’s archive. Buy yeah it wouldn’t hurt to be able to search in the search field for an author. No rush….maybe something to add down the road. Thanks!! BTW – Plugin is working great for me.

    It’s fairly simple addition to make, so I’ll probably add it for the next version.

    This will be included in the version 2.0.

    Hi msaari,
    I have wordpress 3.0.4 version. Relevanssi 2.6 (the last one).
    The problem is that Relevanssi can’t find authors’ name. I have obviously select the option: “Index and search your posts’ authors” and then I have rebuild the index.
    In the template the author’s name is recall by “the_author_posts_link();” function.
    So, why I can’t find my authors? I have more than 400 authors. If their names are not inside the post (text article) then Relevanssi don’t find them.
    For all the rest your plugin is working great (even in custom fields’ search). Thank you so much.

    If you choose the option, authors are indexed. Relevanssi indexes the display name of the author. If you can’t find anything when searching for the authors’ display names, I don’t know what’s going on.

    Hi,
    I have used Relevanssi on my website http://www.pharmaxchange.info/press
    The funny thing is it does not index pages by administrators in my case. Is there a solution for this. The admin name is akul
    First name – Akul
    Last name – Mehta

    Please check and let me know if there are any solutions to rectify it and index those posts as well.

    regards,
    Akul.

    By default Relevanssi indexes every post. There’s no way to exclude posts by certain author from the index.

    You can go to the website and try it out yourself :). I don’t know whats going on.

    I went and checked. If I search for “enolates”, Relevanssi retrieves a post you’ve written. So they’re in the index, and the problem is they can’t be found with the author name? Can’t help you with that, sorry. I’ll check the code to see if there’s a bug. What’s your “display name”?

    It’s the same for my site. http://new.fucinemute.it/
    If you search for example “Marta Zacchigna” there aren’t results (no Marta’s posts).

    But if you see her author page, then you will see she wrote 17 articles.
    http://new.fucinemute.it/author/marta-zacchigna/
    Obviously her articles are in the index, but there isn’t any reference to her name.

    Her display_name in DB is Marta Zacchigna.

    Maybe some conflict with other plugins? Thank you so much.

    Ok, I’ll have to investigate. Maybe there’s some sort of bug.

    Ok, there’s indeed a bug. Looks like author names are being indexed, but in a way that doesn’t really work. If the author has a one-word display name, search should work just fine. If, like most folks, the author has a two-part name, it won’t work. I’ll fix this in 2.7.

    Yesssss!! You’re great!
    I’ve checked. One-word display name is founded!!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    I’m waiting for 2.7! 😉

    same here looking forward to 2.7 now 🙂 hope you release it soon
