Co-Authors Plus

Mô tả

Assign multiple bylines to posts, pages, and custom post types via a search-as-you-type input box. Co-authored posts appear on a co-author’s archive page and in their feed. Co-authors may edit the posts they are associated with, and co-authors who are contributors may only edit posts if they have not been published (as is core behavior).

Add writers as bylines without creating WordPress user accounts. Simply create a guest author profile for the writer and assign the byline as you normally would.

On the frontend, use the Co-Authors Plus template tags to list co-authors anywhere you’d normally list the author.

This plugin is an almost complete rewrite of the Co-Authors plugin originally developed by Weston Ruter (2007). The original plugin was inspired by the ‘Multiple Authors‘ plugin by Mark Jaquith (2005).

  • Multiple authors can be added to a Post, Page, or Custom Post Type using an auto-complete interface.
  • The order of your co-authors can be changed by drag and drop.
  • Guest authors allow you to assign bylines without creating WordPress user accounts. You can also override existing WordPress account meta by mapping a guest author to a WordPress user.

Cài đặt

  1. IMPORTANT: Please disable the original Co-Authors plugin (if you are using it) before installing Co-Authors Plus

  3. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress.
  4. Place the appropriate co-authors template tags in your template.
  5. Add co-authors to your posts and pages.

Hỏi đáp

How do I add Co-Authors Plus support to my theme?

If you’ve just installed Co-Authors Plus, you might notice that the bylines are being added in the backend but aren’t appearing on the frontend. You’ll need to add the template tags to your theme before the bylines will appear.

What happens to posts and pages when I delete a user assigned to a post or page as a coauthor?

When a user is deleted from WordPress, they will be removed from all posts for which they are co-authors. If you chose to reassign their posts to another user, that user will be set as the coauthor instead.

Can I use Co-Authors Plus with WordPress multisite?

Yep! Co-Authors Plus can be activated on a site-by-site basis, or network-activated. If you create guest authors, however, those guest authors will exist on a site-by-site basis.

Who needs permission to do what?

To assign co-authors to posts, a WordPress user will need the ‘edit_others_posts’ capability. This is typically granted to the Editor role, but can be altered with the ‘coauthors_plus_edit_authors’ filter.

To create new guest author profiles, a WordPress will need the ‘list_users’ capability. This is typically granted to the Administrator role, but can be altered with the ‘coauthors_guest_author_manage_cap’ filter.

Can I easily create a list of all co-authors?

Yep! There’s a template tag called coauthors_wp_list_authors() that accepts many of the same arguments as wp_list_authors(). Look in template-tags.php for more details.

Can I disable Guest Authors?

Yep! Guest authors can be disabled entirely through an apt filter. Having the following line load on init will do the trick:
add_filter( ‘coauthors_guest_authors_enabled’, ‘__return_false’ )

Plug-ins are supposed to plug-in and work. This one requires you to be a web developer to make it work. Even if you're a bit familiar with adding code to places with good instructions, this just has information for devs on how to install code - there's no list of instructions to follow. If this changes because there's nothing else out there, I'll come back and revise this review, but I've wasted way too long on this now.

This plugin simply does not work anymore. No matter which author is chosen, whether singularity or co-habiting of a post, the admin user is always displayed, and no other author. It's a shame because this plugin was the best solution for administrating co-authors of posts, if you needed the option.

I rarely ever give 1 star reviews, but developers who take over a plugin - making a breaking change that took a while to resolve - and then refuse to follow standard practice by providing a changelog (despite requests) for future updates, cannot be trusted. Avoid at all costs.

Hi all, is there a way to echo "coauthors_posts_links" for a particular item (eg post Id of 54)? I looked at template-tags.php and can't figure out how to essentially call "get_coauthors_posts_links(54)" or some such. Thank you.

The plugin works as described.

THe plugin works perfectly, but I found a conflict with another plugin which uses the same taxonomy name "author". It would be better to change the taxonomy name with a more specific one or give the possibility to apply a filter to the taxonomy name
