Right now, the widgets in the showcase show "Details-Author" and download, I think. To see the author's profile or go to a more detailed page about the widget, I have to either click on the links or the picture or the title of the widget.

I would find it useful if the author's name appeared in the showcase without having to click on anything...I know some names are hard to fit, but wouldn't it be possible to have some sort of display for the author names?


Even in the "recent widgets" column to the right, a "by so and so" line in addition to the title would be nice, in my opinion.

That would be really good. I second this request!

For names that are too long, Safari (and probably most other mac browsers) support the
Code:
text-overflow: ellipsis;
property, so the user "IHaveAReallyLongName" would be displayed as "IHaveAReallyLong...".

Hi guys,
You were right, we did need to replace the Details and Author links, they were redundant. The date will now fill their place but clicking on the date will reveal the widget's author.

Clicking on the date does nothing now (I could do it 3 weeks ago...). Sad

I certainly can, can you just confirm that you have Javascript enabled?

Is that on the Showcase Index or category view? It doesn't actually work on category view.
