[Bug ? 2.8.2] Revision number inserted on empty author field

[ Bug ? 2.8.2 ] Revision number inserted on author field if no name present

Dear Thorsten Rinne / Development Team

One of our "power users" reported that if the FAQ's author field is blank (by accidental deletion), the FAQ's revision number is placed on that field.

Is this a security feature or a bug?

He also suggested the implementation of a control feature to prevent this (and similar) situations - specially on critical fields.

At this moment, we are unable to reproduce the reported issue because we had to downgrade
the site's phpMyFAQ version from 2.8.2 to 2.7.9 (due to another "power user" complaint - regarding paginated navigation: it works only within the advanced search results list).
.
Tanking in advance.
..
Kind regards

Hi,

I updated to 2.8.11 and I see that the admin field (if empty) is populated by the revision number.

Thanks

I cannot reproduce this, any chance to check that on your FAQ?

Just figured that after I hit submit button in PM, it says "The requested users to be added do not exist." even though Thorsten is listed there.

Edit:
Ah, first I had to learn how to use it. It has been sent now...
