Assembly: System.ServiceModel.Web (in System.ServiceModel.Web.dll)
When serialized to Atom 1.0, the is written out as an <author> or <contributor> element.
When serialized to RSS 2.0, a instance is written out as a <managingEditor>, <a10:author>, or <a10:contributor> element. How a is serialized depends on the number of objects added to a SyndicationFeed or SyndicationItem, which collection the instances are added to, and the value of the SerializeExtensionAsAtom parameter to the Rss20ItemFormatter(SyndicationItem, Boolean) constructor. If only one is added to the Authors (or Authors) collection, the is serialized to a <managingEditor> element. If more than one is added to the Authors (or Authors) collection and SerializeExtensionsAsAtom is set to true, all of the objects are serialized to <a10:author> elements. If SerializeExtensionsAsAtom is set to false, the instances is not serialized. Any instances added to the Contributors (or Contributors) collection are only serialized if SerializeExtensionsAsAtom is set to true, in which case they are serialized to <a10:contributor> elements.
The following code shows how to add a to the authors collection of a SyndicationFeed instance.
