Text child of "author" element not parsed #32

When I load a feed that contains bare text content in an author subelement of an item, the author property of the resulting article is null.

I believe this is because, at main.js#858, only name, email, and uri child elements of the author element are loaded. This is correct for Atom / RFC4287 feeds.

But in RSS 2.0, a bare text child of the author element is specified. I think the correct approach is going to be to accept the text child of author, in the case where no other subelements are found.

This construct was seen in the wild at


Oh, sure. You're absolutely right. Thanks for the bug report.
