Drupal - Author Smart Name

Hi All,

Im trying to install a module, which includes some configuration options in the backend administration. When I try and access the modules admin page, I get the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function y() in /var/www/........../author_smart_name/ on line 10

function author_smart_name_settings() {
  $options = array(
    '0' => t('User Name'),
  if (module_exists('profile')){
    $options['1'] = y('Profile module (core)');
  if (module_exists('content_profile')){
    $options['2'] = l(t('Content Profile'), '', array('absolute'=>TRUE, 'target'=>'_blank')) . t(' module');
  $source_default = variable_get('author_smart_name_source', 0);

  $form['author_smart_name_source'] = array(
    '#type' => 'radios',
    '#title' => t('What would you like to use as the source for your Author names?'),
    '#default_value' => $source_default,
    '#description' => t('By default, the authoring information field is autopopulated with usernames.  Because one often has better values than users names available for authoring information, this module allows you to choose from alternate sources of names: Core Profile module, Content Profile module, etc.  Please choose from the options provided.'),
    '#options' => $options,
  $form['author_smart_name_markup'] = array(
    '#value' => '<p>'.t('If you have an alternate source that is not supported by this module, please open an issue. ').'</p>',
  // TODO details for each option - would be cool if this form were js smart
  // TODO which profile field? (option 1)
  if ($source_default == 1){
    $profile_fields = _profile_get_fields();
    // TODO this might not be in the right format - needs testing for this use case

Similar functionaliy could be done easily via CCK and Rules.

Add a User Reference field to the content type. Then create a rule which sets the author to be the referenced user.
