Author name gets pulled into post content

  1. Hey,

    When user create a new post on my site, their first & last name appear automaticlly in the form fields (first & last name) which is great. the problem is the first and last name gets pulled into the post content.

    What happens is the first 2 words of the post is the first and last name of the author.
    is there a way to fix that?

    Thanks

  2. I added this to functions.php in order for the First & Last name to appear automaticlly

    // populate the field with "user_firstname" as the population parameter with the "first_name" of the current user
    add_filter('gform_field_value_user_firstname', create_function("", '$value = populate_usermeta(\'first_name\'); return $value;' ));

    // populate the field with "user_lastname" as the population parameter with the "last_name" of the current user
    add_filter('gform_field_value_user_lastname', create_function("", '$value = populate_usermeta(\'last_name\'); return $value;' ));

    // populate the field with "user_email" as the population parameter with the "email" of the current user
    add_filter('gform_field_value_user_email', create_function("", '$value = populate_usermeta(\'user_email\'); return $value;' ));

    // this function is called by both filters and returns the requested user meta of the current user
    function populate_usermeta($meta_key){
    global $current_user;
    return $current_user->__get($meta_key);
    }

  3. OK, I feel kinda stupid. I had a merge tag insert inside the post content, and that was making the problem.

    Got it all fixed now.
