WordPress Post-Notification – Show the author in email subject

I was trying to fix a WordPress Post Notification plugin to include the post author in the emails subject. Instead of inserting the author name it was leaving the @@author in the subject.

A little digging around found me the solution –

In sendmail.php->post_notification_create_email(), find –

$subject = get_option('post_notification_subject');

and add a new line after that –

$subject = str_replace('@@author', $post_author, $subject);
