Support » Fixing WordPress » the_author() displays twice

  • Using the following code:

    	$mymood=get_post_meta($post->ID, "Mood", $single=true);
    		echo "<span>". the_author() ." was <strong>".get_post_meta($post->ID, "Mood", $single=true)."</strong> when he wrote this post</span><br />";

    … the author name displays twice. The blog has only one author.

  • You want to change “the_author()” in your echo into “get_the_author()”, because the_author() itself displays the author’s name, while get_the_author() just returns the value.
