I was investigating how configuration and pages map to RSS recently, and looking at the default template. I realized the author configuration used by the theme I chose is different from how the RSS template resolves them (params.author_name vs - author.name, and only if author.email is defined).
This makes author.name and author.email some standard configuration for Hugo - it’s in the default template. I don’t see this documented anywhere, and the getting started->configuration page actually seems to recommend different…
I’m wondering - am I missing something that specifies this, or better guidance on this? Should I make a pull request to fix the documentation or document this setup further? Also - the default RSS template doesn’t seem to handle article-specific authors, and it doesn’t make sense to me that an email address is required for any author to be displayed… I’m considering a pull request to modify that.
