Newscoop 3.2 introduces a new feature: static author field.
To properly populate the new field with article author names that you had in your pre-3.2 Newscoop, you need to invoke the set-author script. To do so, do the following:
- Log in into the admin interface
- Type the following url in the browser: <your site>/admin/set-author.php
- In the resulting popup, select the field from which you would like to import author names.
