Subject: Need Help with Author List Plugin and Name Changes
I don't know if this is the right category for this but, man, I can't seem to understand why Meta info does not update properly when real names and user names are changed. This shortcoming of dokuwiki breaks the author list plugin, or forces me to use user names only for display as well as restricting user name changes.

I wish someone could write a plugin that changes the meta info when a user changes his real name, or I change a user name through admin so "Created by" in the author list (and possibly revision and history info) properly reflects all name changes. Can anyone help? I admit, I don't quite understand how Doku caches info. Perhaps a plugin that modifies the SAVE button on the profile page to call a function that searches meta files for the name and replaces it with the new name?
