Member names can now sync from Ghost to Cove

New • 1 min read

Using a single new line of code in your Ghost theme, you can enable member name syncing from Ghost to Cove, keeping member names consistent with the data in Ghost.

For existing Cove installations, simply add the last line memberName: "{{@member.firstname}}" into your config as follows.

const Cove = {
    publication: "your_site_id",
    contentId: "{{id}}",
    memberId: "{{@member.uuid}}",
    memberEmail: "{{}}",
    memberName: "{{@member.firstname}}"

You can disable member name syncing by removing the memberName: "{{@member.firstname}}" line.

Member names are only synced when members make new comments; they are not synced automatically in the background.
