Support » Plugin: Simple Sitemap » Turn off Sort by Author mode

  • Resolved d5f7p9


    I think your plugin works great. However, when in “Sort by Author” mode, it displays all users’ names and that feature cannot be turned off. We do not want any users’ names displayed ever regardless of the users’ role. In other words, we want to be able to turn off the “Sort by Author” mode for both pages and posts. In addition, as further support of this request, I would like to point out that the “exclude page” feature does not work in “Sort by Author” mode. Until you can add the ability to turn off “Sort by Author” mode, I don’t feel that we will be able to use your plugin.

    You can hide the drop down boxes on the front end now with the latest version.

    I will look into the sort issue for the next release.

    I too did not want Authors displayed so I went into simple-sitemap.php and removed the code that calls for Authors in both the Post and Page settings. This is being tested in a child theme on a beta site, but it seems to work just fine. Obviously there would be an issue with any updates to the plugin but it is a fix until the Plugin Author has a chance to sort out the issue. Great plugin by the way. I am looking at adding it to all of my sites.
