Feed author name

  1. Hi,

    this is my blog http://www.thesystemsblog.com

    Whenever I view my rss feeds on google reader, it does not show the proper author name ( which should be systemist) the author name that is shown is [email redacted], I also want to change the feed name from 'My RSS Feed' to ' the systems blog feed'

    Thanks for helping in advances :)

    The blog I need help with is thesystemsblog.com.

  2. the author name shown is user (at) domian (dot) com

  3. This should work.

    Go to Your Dashboard -> Users -> My Profile and edit the field of name to change your name to whatever you want. Currently both, your username and your name, are the same (systemicist).

  4. So is it because both are the same?

    why is it not displaying systemicist?

  5. Please note that the format generated by WordPress.com is designed to display well on most feed readers and we cannot change the display. All are different. Some feed readers display image and videos and names and some do not. The oddball one is always Google reader.

  6. @systemicist I subscribed your blog on Google Reader and it reads like:

    Requisite Variety, And The Rest Of It…

    You should change your display name and post a new article on your blog to see changes.

    Oops! I understood your question a bit wrong. BTW On my google reader, The title of your RSS feed is 'The Systemicist's Blog' and Author name is 'systemicist'.
