    Hi, my blog posts at http://www.hellmannconsulting.com/blog are all authored by me. If I click on “Posts” when logged into my WordPress console, I see a list of my posts, all with Author name Robert Hellmann . But when I add the “Author Name” tag in the AIOSEO “RSS Before Content” box, the author name that gets included in my feed (and on my RSS emails) is “John Contarino”, the developer of my website who is also listed as one of two authors to choose from, the other being me.

    How can I get this “Author Name” tag to display the correct author of these blog posts in my feed? Is there some other setting I need to change?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @robhellmann, I checked the RSS feed that All in One SEO outputs to which is https://www.hellmannconsulting.com/feed/ and I only see your name in that feed.

    Are you still seeing the same problem in this feed https://www.hellmannconsulting.com/feed/?

    Hi thanks for looking into this. No the problem is not on that feed (where the AIOSEO tag works fine), it’s on this feed, the page on my website where my blog actually resides: http://www.hellmannconsulting.com/blog/feed .

    The #author name tag adds my developer’s name for some strange reason on the “blog” feed. If I take out the #author name tag the developer’s name is removed (and my name of course doesn’t show up either).

    To verify, if you do a search on that page (www.hellmannconsulting.com/blog/feed) you’ll see <description><![CDATA[John Contarino<p>Changing careers … when it should be <description><![CDATA[Robert Hellmann<p>Changing careers …

    Just to be clear the problem with this is in creating RSS to Email campaigns with any Email Marketing tool (Mailchimp, etc.), or if someone is using a feed reader with the url set to my blog page – John’s name shows up, not mine.

    I would appreciate any thoughts on how to fix this!

    Hi @robhellmann, I’m not seeing the name John Contarino anywhere on the feed here – http://www.hellmannconsulting.com/blog/feed

    Did you remove that tag? If so, can you put it back whilst we troubleshoot please.

    Are you able to export your WordPress SQL database and send it to me? It’s specifically the wp_users and wp_usermeta tables I need.

    Sorry I had removed the tag while testing and forgot to put it back. the #Author Name tag is there now and you’ll see his name. I will seek to exort the SQL database within the next couple of hours. Thanks for your followup.

    Hi, thanks again for your support on this issue. I installed a plugin to download the database, it’s just completed downloading a 40mb file. How do I get it to you? Can I upload it to Google Drive and email you a link (will need your email address)? My email is rob@hellmannconsulting.com if you want to email me directly to send the file.

    Hi @robhellmann, yes Google Drive would be fine or any other filesharing service. Thank you for doing this.

    Sorry @robhellmann, I meant to say that I’ve contacted you by email to get the files.

    We’ve opened an issue because in the case of the feed for /blog/feed/, the author details come from the author of the static Blog page, not the posts within the blog.
