Is anyone else unable to edit CMS article authors after upgrading to version 4.0.4?

Edit: I appear to be experience a vbulletin bug that is making it so my template edits are not showing up. Not this mod's fault.

2nd Request - Mod does not work with apostrophes in names

I hate to post this again, however, I did not see this had been answered either way. My apologies if it was an I missed the answer.

Good Day,

I use this mod at two RPG boards and it is vital to our games. Great work!

I have, however, run into an issue with it and wonder if we could get a fix for it?

We have characters in the Stargate RPG (and may have in the Babylon 5 one in the future) that have apostrophes in their names (Examples: Col. Jack O'Neill, Teal'c, etc.).

When we go to edit a post to add our portions of the story, in posts owned by O'Neill or Teal'c, the mod cuts the name off after the apostrophe and resets the post owner to "Guest". For example, Col. Jack O'Neill becomes Col. Jack O and that is, of course, an unregistered name.

I am providing screen shots. Please let me know if this can be fixed.

Regards and Thanks

Alisa

this is a great mod but problems to me. If I post using another username I have register myself I go to my profile and see that posts dont count on second user and counts as the primary user. Im an admin and will like to post as somone else but this Mod screw me over as members can see Im both users. That is not good, i thought this will count to the other user and not my self,

what is the point of using this mod if at the end you not covering anything but posting with 2 different usernames and counting to the main user account.

Now I ask can this be fix?

Does the count fix itself if you make vbulletin recalculate post counts?

apparently it fixed the post count but.... I still have the problem that posts still show my second username.

What is the point of using this Mod if all post made when you change the author name still will be show the main user posted?

Is there a way to fix this before I get caught in act? lol

Forum Section Works.

CMS Section in edit has option to change Name however when saved/published it does not stick and goes back to original username unless the username is real. I want to use real names not registered.

thoughts?

Sounds like an index issue, but I'm not there is a function in admincp to reset the post-posted-by index?

^^^ If you log in as the user who you set as the author, you can click on "edit" and then "save" and then they show up under View Forum Posts.

Still doesn't affect the post count though.
