<txp:if_author /> container tag, 2 attributes

if_author

The if_author tag is a conditional tag and always used as an opening and closing pair, like this…

<txp:if_author>
...conditional statement...
</txp:if_author>

The tag will execute the contained statement if the called page is the result of an article search by a specific author’s name.

This is not the same as checking if the current article was written (posted) by the given author. Use if_article_author for that situation
