Tags

Plugin to use author's screen_name in URL titles of author archives created by listing entries by author_id.

Usage of this plugin consists of 4 steps:

1. Upload it to your system/expressionengine/third_party folder.
2. Set your template route for the template used to display member’s entries to:

/url/{screen_name:alpha_dash}/{page:pagination}

Example:

/news/author/{screen_name:alpha_dash}/{page:pagination}

3. Use plugin to give the route the properly formatted screen name:

{route=“template_group/template” screen_name=”{exp:author_id:screen_name}{screen_name}{/exp:author_id:screen_name}”}

4. Use plugin to get member id from screen_name when listing entries by author_id:

{exp:channel:entries channel=“news”  author_id=”{exp:author_id:id group_id=‘6’ screen_name=’{segment_3}’}” parse=“inward” dynamic=“no”}

Note that parse=“inward” must be used for plugin to work.

Accepted parameters are: separator and group_id.

separator - default URL separator is “-” but can be changed by using separator=”+” with both tags.

group_id - limit query to a specific group. This parameter is only valid with the {exp:author_id:id} tag.
