Can the RSS Feed display usernames?
I like to keep an eye on my forums activity through an RSS feed reader on my iphone that bings whenever there is an update.  However the feed never tells me who has posted the message.  I have been looking through the admin options and I have found this:

"Show the authors displayname and e-mail address (if he didn't hide it) "

It has been checked for a week now and still I'm not seeing names.  I have gone through my profile and I cannot see an obvious option related to this.  Where should I be looking?  Am I doing something wrong?

for this to show in RSS the user in
User CP › Profile > Edit my Profile (User) › Contact Information
has to set "Hide Email from public?" to No the default for this is Yes

Re: Can the RSS Feed display usernames?
I thought that would be the one.  It's never been checked on my profile and yet my posts include no name or email or anything on the rss feed.  Guess I'll keep poking it and hope for the best.  Thank you.

Re: Can the RSS Feed display usernames?
This is a built-in - written that way to avoid some issues with RSS and emails so it's all or nothing:
Quote:
                 # The spec really wants us to include their email.
                 # That's not adviseable for us (spambots anyone?). So we skip author if the email hidden flag is on for that user.


However, it should show if the user or admin is allowing publically viewable email addresses.
