    Author and Publisher not being saved Link to this post

    Hi,

    I have come across something that I think must be a bug, or else I'm missing something vital.

    On a fresh 2.3.3 installation with the BlackCandy theme, I log into the CMS, make some changes to a page and hit Save and Publish.

    If I now look at the Page Version History my newly created version is listed there but the Author and Publisher columns are totally empty.

    If I look into the database in the SiteTree_Versions table I find TWO versions of the same page I just created (one with status Save (update) and one with Published - is this correct?). The page with the Published status gets PublisherID = 1 but AuthorID is 0.

    The same happens if I create a new page.

    Even though the PublisherID is set to 1 (that's the default admin account, i.e. me) the Publisher column is still empty under Page Version History.

    Any clues?

    I just tried this on a fresh install of 2.3.4 with the same result.

    Can anyone here verify whether this works for you?

    I'm seeing the same thing with a pretty vanilla SS 2.3.4

    I only saw it because the Latest Page Widget shows up no author. I'll look in the SS bugtracker next.

    This is probably fixed by this patch :

    Sorry for my ignorance but it seems like this fix was 4 months old. Shouldn't this mean that it should be solved in 2.3.4?

    No, that change was only applied to trunk. This change will only appear in trunk or 2.4 (trunk was branched to create 2.4 a few months ago).
