change the "Posted by" link to a "News by this author" link, everywhere in the News module

I don't know if this would appeal to anyone, but I wanted to over use the "news by this author" links, and I didn't like the format of the "Posted by" links on the news module, if you change line 504 in /modules/news/class/class.newsstory.php to
$story['poster'] = "<a href='".XOOPS_URL."/modules/news/newsbythisauthor.php?uid=".$this->uid()."'>".$story['poster']."</a>";

Everywhere you used to have a link that would send your visitors to the authors user info, now sends them to the "News by this author" link. - again, it was handy for me, might not be for you.

This works well for me on 1.3, I don't see why it wouldn't work on all, the line number just might be off though, on different versions.

My example, and shameless plug, would behttp://www.knewstalk.com where I wanted the authors names to be links to the news by this author page.
