I've just added the latest novel by M. K. Hume Prophecy: Clash of Kings. After completing my addition I noticed that the author's name showed up as Marylin K. Hume. I looked at the CK and saw that someone had set the Canonical Name to that. Now all the books I have by Ms. Hume have her shown as M.K. Hume so I thought that I would move the entered name from Canonical to Legal. I was just about to do this when I remembered that in the past there was a bug with the Canonical Name that once used an entry had to be maintained in that field. I was wondering does this bug still exist?
The bug has been fixed. However, sometimes when you remove a Canonical Name, it appears on the author page in Last, First order. You can fix that by refreshing the page, re-entering it, refreshing again, then removing it again.
