Question

How can I fill in the contents of the edit page's "Author" field with a username entered from the password prompt?

Answer

Add the following lines to your local/config.php:

    if (@$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']) 
      $Author = $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'];

(If that file is still empty, don't forget to add the php <? and ?>)
