Change author through atompub

  1. I am successfully using atompub on wordpress.com to create new posts. When I don't include an author element in the entry, the post author defaults to the user that I authenticating with. However, when I explicitly create an author element for a different user (one who has permission to author posts on the blog), the author information is still set to the user that I am authenticating with. Here is how I have setup the author element:

    <author>
    <name>UserName</name>
    <uri>[email redacted]</uri>
    <email>[email redacted]<email>
    </author>

    the name, uri, and email are the same as the user registered on wordpress.com

    Would anyone know if wordpress.com has disabled the ability to set the author through atompub? If nothing has been done explicitly on wordpress.com, then should this be an issue with wordpress.org?

    The blog I need help with is girihdemo.wordpress.com.
