Contributor's name in citation


We are currently testing a site we have set up. the plan is to have people contributing content through the 'contribute an item' tab. This all works fine but contributed items seem to have the contributor's name in the citation instead of the creator - see this example

Any ideas how I can get rid of this?



The default citations use Creator.

Do you possibly have a custom plugin installed that changes the citation?

We have the following plugins running:




CSV Import

Derivative Images

Digital Object Linker Plugin

Embed Codes

Exhibit Builder


Guest User

Search By Metadata

Simple Pages

Simple Vocab

The Contribution plugin makes that change to the citation. To remove it, you can go into the ContributionPlugin.php file and comment out the filter that makes that happen. Around lines 46-56, comment out 'item_citation' with // so it looks like:

protected $_filters = array(
//        'item_citation',

Thanks - will try it!
