Co-Authors Plus

Assign multiple bylines to posts, pages, and custom post types via a search-as-you-type input box

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.
