Created By. Missing. Advice?

  • Hi.

    I’m the Founder over at We have a slight problem in our forums, and by slight I mean pretty big.

    My web developer doesn’t know what to do, bless his cotton socks. So I’m coming on here, preying that some kind soul may be able to help me out.

    If you check the forum out you’ll see that there is no section telling users who created what topic. We are using Kakumei theme, but my web developer says he’s modded it heavily.

    Any advice?

    My developer told me to include this aswell…

    Ask: If anybody knows a script or function that will define the user who started the topic?

    From your forum:

    > Please wait a reasonable amount of time before

    > bumping posts. Try to bump posts using 24 hours

    > as a guideline. Posts that are not within these

    > guidelines are subject to removal.

    I found that funny. Also funny to say “preying” vs. praying. All very interesting.

    Anyway, to find out who started a topic, you need to stick this into your template somewhere, wherever you want to see that information.

    <?php echo get_topic_author(); ?>

    Haha, I’ll get onto the mod who created the rules. Thanks for the help!

    My developer says he has tried the exact same method. No dice.

    Any other advice?




    What happens when he tries that? Need more information please. Maybe you should put the developer on here to discuss.

    BTW, I did try that exact thing in my template and it works fine. Maybe it won’t work where you’re trying to use it?
