Acessing Vae User Data for a Blog page
  • Is there a way to access the '(Real) Name' field in the Vae CMS backend?

    I want an automatic way for a "Posted by (Real) Name" message to be at the end of each blog post.

    Is this possible?

  • I'm not sure if you can grab the real name from the user's account and display it on the site (I'll defer to KB on that issue), but you could create a collection called 'Authors' and create a single association to the Blog collection. Then when someone writes an article, they can select the author's name from the drop-down (might be good in case someone ever writes a post outside of Vae and hands it off to a colleague to enter into the system). Obviously this would be reduce the level of governance that the owners could control over their writers, but might be more flexible depending on the req's.

  • The proposed suggestion above is what I would endorse.

Howdy, Stranger!
