New word documents are always created by 潘灵涛


I’m running Seafile 7.0.8. If I create a new .docx file via the browser (Seahub) , the “created by” tag is set with a chinese name 潘灵涛.
.xlsx files are not effected.
Google Translate says it means Pan Lingtao.
I guess this is the “real/additional” name of Daniel Pan???

In any case this seems to be an remnant of development to me. Can anybody confirm this behavior?

It will be fixed in the next release.

In early version of Seafile 7 (and also Seafile 6), “Vincent Lee” was author of all DOCX files created in Seahub. Then in a later version of Seafile 7, “潘灵涛” became the new Vincent Lee :wink: But the problem was then fixed in 7.0.x (don’t recall which version).

This said, I cannot reproduce the problem. Not in Seafile PE 7.0.8 at least. The problem still seems to exist in Seafile CE 7.0.4.

I can reproduce this behavior in all 7.0.8 PE instances. Even on
@rdb Maybe there is something special about your 7.0.8 PE instance?

@poly01 I am not sure what I tested earlier, but - you are right - I can now reproduce the problem. (Not so special our Seafile server after all :wink: )

I agree: there is a problem with the author meta-tag for DOCX files created in Seahub.

PS: I would almost bet that the issue had been fixed in an interim version, but I don’t trust my judgement a lot today.
