Group Blog Comment notification doesn't include username
Hi Ray -- I see a comment on the blog attached to a group, but the email notification did not list the author's name. Please find screenshots attached and here is a link to the comment itself: https://dhintro18.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2018/09/19/designing-for-difficulty/#comment-66

The person commenting does not have a valid user account on the Commons.
When this happens, we should fall back to whatever the commenter's name is from the blog. We currently do not do this.
I'll fix this for the next maintenance release.

do you mean that she was not logged in at the time she left the comment?
That's correct. She left the comment when logged out and used an email address not attached to an existing Commons user account to post the comment. To be sure, I cross-referenced the email address she used for posting the comment against the Commons user database and couldn't find a match.

- Status changed from Assigned to Staged for Production Release
This was actually a problem with BP Groupblog not recording the anonymous commenter name during the implementation of #8225. Boone, I've added a pull request to the BP Groupblog repo so you can merge the fix into the main plugin.
I also uncovered a small bug where the post title was not rendering properly in the email subject for groupblog comment emails.
I've fixed both issues here - https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/compare/94139cd...17fa2cb
