another small change we've made: displaying author name in announcements in addition to date and time. this affects a courses front page where announcements are displayed, as well as the manage -> announcements page where an extra column with author name is displayed.

rationale

many different people can be given the privilege to write announcements, therefore adding this data to the display makes sense.

a text file describing the changes is attached - thanks to Gorzan yet again!

here's a screenshot of our announcements on a courses front page, after some additional styling.

Sounds like a good adjustment. This has been added to the feature tracker.

great! - I have discovered a small bug that we're working on (related to sorting on authors under manage -> announcements)

..watch this thread for updates.

Fixed the bug, here are diff files (made by comparing the changed files with a fresh 1.6 install with atutor redux theme).

Affected files:
index.php
/tools/news/index.php
/themes/atutor-redux/index.tmpl.php
