When I create an RSS feed for the News module, the author gets reported with their USERNAME, instead of their First + Last Name . So, for example, if the user John Doe has a username j-doe, and he creates a new post in News module, that news item shows up in the RSS feed as being posted by j-doe.
If you ask me, there is no scenario in which this is acceptable--the site visitors should NOT be aware of authors' usernames. It doesn't look pretty, it doesn't look official, and one could even argue that it poses a security threat.
So, is this a bug or just a default behavior of RSS feeds that can be changed? If so, how?
