PublishPress Authors: Show Multiple Authors and Guest Authors in an Author Box


PublishPress Authors allows you to show an author box at the end of your posts. This author box can display one author, multiple authors or even guest authors. This box has the author’s name, avatar, description and more. You can also place the author box in widgets, shortcodes and Gutenberg blocks.

Here are the three most important features of PublishPress Authors:

  • Author Box. As soon as you install PublishPress Authors, you’ll see an author box under every post. You can add all the profile details you need for each author.
  • Multiple Authors. By default, WordPress only allows one author per post. PublishPress Authors allows you to add an unlimited number of authors to each post. This is very useful if you have a busy site and need to manage and give credit to all your writers.
  • Guest Authors. You can create Guest Authors who don’t have an account on your site. This is important because not all writers need a username and password.

Multiple Authors and Co-Authors

With PublishPress Authors, you can set multiple authors for each post. When you write a post, you’ll see a box in the right sidebar. Here you can choose from all the users on your site, and assign them as authors.

On the frontend of your site. PublishPress Authors gives you several different options to display the authors’ box:

  • Replacing the default author display.
  • At the bottom of your content.
  • In a widget or a Gutenberg block.
  • Using shortcodes.
  • Adding filters and actions in your template files.

Guest Authors

Using PublishPress Authors, you can create Guest Authors who don’t need an account on your site. PublishPress will treat Guest Authors identically to Authors who are linked users.

You will be able to select and display Guest Authors in exactly the same way as for registered users. Each Guest Author can have a full profile, plus an avatar, and their own archive page for blog posts.

Multiple Layout Options for Author Profiles

PublishPress Authors provides five default ways to display the author profiles on your site. In the PublishPress Authors settings you can choose from these layouts:

  • Simple list
  • Boxed
  • Centered
  • Inline
  • Inline with Avatars

PublishPress Authors Pro enables you to create custom fields and enhance your author profiles. You can add Text, WYSIWYG, Link and email address fields. Then you can place those fields in author profiles using custom layouts.

Custom Layouts for Author Profiles (Pro version)

PublishPress Authors enables you to build custom layouts for your author profiles. Using all your author information and custom fields, you can design beautiful layouts for your authors. Each layout is editable using HTML and PHP. You can add many different types of author information to these layouts including custom fields.

I have been using Publish Press guest author plugin extensively for my website. I was surprised to get such a prompt response when I faced an issue. Thank You PublishPress.

This plugin solves a real problem for WordPress sites that publish material from authors who are not also site users. It lets you create guest authors, as well as assign multiple authors to one post. I have been pleased not only with the plugin itself, but with excellent tech support on several occasions as I tried to make it work with our particular theme and display needs. Highly recommended!

Just started to use it, but it works better than expected. Free version fits all my needs... but it is always useful to check PRO...
9 de febrero de 2021
The PublishPress Authors plugin does just what we needed... a way to give multiple authors credit for a post. And support has been great. First with helping with applying custom CSS to accommodate the aspect ratio of our avatar photos. And with a more serious caching issue with a recent version. Anderson has been great in working through this issue and providing a hot fix, that will be included in the next release.

I puchased the plugin last week. It is the perfect solution for and extended medical blog we are building. Steve and Anderson were really helpful in giving advice and went out of their way to get the plugin working nicely with our elementor modules. Highly recommmeded. Thanks Paul
