Note: the functionality of this module has been partly merged into Backdrop
core since version 1.16.0. This module, in addition to the core functionality:

  • Allows you to customise the "submitted by" line per display mode
  • Allows the "submitted by" pseudo-field to be ordered in each display mode

Submitted By enables you to control the format of your content's "Submitted by"
information per content type. It adds fields to your node edit form that let you
enter tokenized patterns for the text you want to display.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at

  • Enter tokenized patterns for your node or comment's Submitted By information
    at Administration > Structure > Content Types > [content_type]


Because Submitted By dynamically builds string, the only way we know to translate them is to use the "String Overrides" in settings.php per language.
