[resolved] Author list gets confused by names with commas (3 posts)

    I have created some authors for publications. In accordance with journal standards the author called First Name Surname is listed as Surname, F. N. This works well when adding and managing authors.
    I can even just add a short name of first.

    However when I add an author to a publication, I can type the tag first, which is then recognized as being Surname, F. N. which is inserted into the text box.

    When the text box is processed the authors Surname and F.N. are added.

    I can see what is happening - the comma from the expanded tag is being viewed as part of the comma separated list of tags.

    I haven't looked yet at the order in which these things are done, but it seems that the tags are being expanded before the csl is being expanded, and I 'need' it done the other way around.

    Do you have any suggestions for how to get around this?

    I've looked further at the code and I can see that taxonomies with commas in the terms are a problem. I think I'll back out of this one and just put the authors as part of the publication description.

    It looks like this is an issue scheduled to be fixed with a coming version of WordPress.
