Submitted by node edit fieldset

A small module that lets you control the format of the "Submitted by" information on your content per content type. It adds a fieldset to your node edit form called Appearance that lets you put in a tokenized pattern for the text you want to display.

Depends on Token module. Note: This module does not create any data; rather it relies on other modules providing that data through Token.

You might find the Custom Tokens module useful for things that aren't already provided.

How can you get involved?



Because Submitted by dynamically builds string, the only way we know to translate them is to use the settings.php technique.

Theme problems

The following themes are known to not properly honor theme('node_submitted'):

  • Artist C01

If you encounter any others, please let us know so that we can update this list.


As with all contributed modules, when considering submitting an issue:

  1. Read the documentation (two or three times is better). Don't forget the handbook pages.
  2. Review the existing issues list. (Don't forget to select "<all>" for the "Status" field.)
  3. Gather all the appropriate information. This may include (but is not limited to):
  • Error messages, if any.
  • Module settings.
  • Drupal version.
  • Browser type and version.
  • Database type and version.
  • Submit the issue. If other modules are involved, you may need to submit the issue to those modules as well.
  • Update.php

    As with all modules, please make sure you run update.php after updating this module, even if no updates are identified.

    Development version status

    The development versions (-dev) are where the newest stuff is, including any bug fixes and new features. We try to make sure it is tested before we commit anything, but occasionally a bug will get by us. Your help on testing this code is greatly appreciated. The translation templates may not always be up-to-date in the dev releases.
