 Element reference

Service API elements from <alias> to <workflow>



The author of a comment, draft, edit or event which might or might not be a PageSeeder member.

There are two possible models for the author element:

  • If the author is a PageSeeder member, the model inherits from the basic representation of a member.
  • If the author is not a PageSeeder member, the email address and/or full name of the person is included.

Usage context

Permitted content<fullname>
Permitted parent<comment> <draft> <edit> <event>


This element inherits the following attributes from the <member> element.

attachmentsbooleannoIf the user receives email attachments
emailemailnoThe email address of the member
externalidxs:stringnoAn external identifier for the member
firstnamexs:stringif memberThe first name of the member
idxs:longif memberThe ID of the member in PageSeeder
lockedbooleannoIf the member account is locked
onvacationbooleannoIf the member email option is set to ‘on vacation’
statusenumif memberThe current status of the member
surnamexs:stringif memberThe surname of the member
usernamexs:stringif memberThe username of the member
The attributes are only inherited from the member if the author is a member. When parsing <author> elements, it can be safely assumed that if the @id attribute is present then the @firstname, @surname, @username and @status also are.
