Issue: Recent Discussions Module doesn't show author
I noticed that the recent discussions module (Vanilla 2.2b1) doesn't show the author's name until a first comment has been made. This is due to the
$Discussion->LastName being empty for discussions without comments even though
$Discussion->LastUserID is always set. This seems to be either inconsistent or erroneous behavior.
Here the relevant member fields for a discussion without comments:
[FirstUserID] => 2 [FirstName] => Admin [FirstDate] => 2015-07-09 21:12:10 [LastUserID] => 2 [LastName] => [LastDate] => 2015-07-09 21:12:10
I didn't create a github issue for this since I first want to hear your feedback. Could this be fixed without touching the Vanilla core?
