Blog: incorrect display of author and date in excerpt title only mode

With this in theme.skin: PostListUseBottomDate="true"

and the blog set in "Use Excerpt?" = True and "Show Title Only In List" = True

only the post title is rendered on the list view.

However if we change to PostListUseBottomDate="false" and leave everything else the same, the author and date are rendered in the list view as well as the title, which seems like a bug.

Re: Blog: incorrect display of author and date in excerpt title only mode

ok, I "fixed" it in the source code repository but now it is no longer possible if someone wants to show only the title and date so I'm not sure this was a bug or needed fixing.

Re: Blog: incorrect display of author and date in excerpt title only mode

In my site I wanted one blog with the date at the top, and another with just a title list, which was impossible with things as they were, so thanks very much for the fix.

For those who want to show just title and author/date, I feel this was not really a good way of achieving this result, as there was no clear logic or documentation for it. If people do need this, and they might, perhaps there could be a new theme.skin setting like ShowAuthorAndDateOnPostList="true", or perhaps HideAuthorAndDateInPostList="false", and/or a new setting under Excerpt Mode Settings called "Show Author and Date in List?".
