Names of "Featured users" disappeared between SN 1.0.1 and GNU Social 1.1.1-alpha1
OpenPublic

Description

Previously if you include a line in your config file like this:

$config['nickname']['featured'][] = 'terminus';

then the user in question will be listed in a "Featured users" block on the front page with his avatar next to his username. But when I upgraded from StatusNet to GNU Social, the name disappeared leaving only the avatar.

It seems this change was made when @mmn made 'Initial move towards Microformats 2' and it appears to be an intended design change, but would have to wait for @mmn's reply to be sure.

Yeah, there's probably some CSS that has to be taken care of. Would someone mind linking me to a page which uses the 'featured accounts' list?

Cool, now I understand the problem. True, there is no text element there to show a nickname.

I'll have a look later today. :)
