    Hello! I am starting a blog site to support my ecommerce site. I have a woman putting it together (overseas), and it looks okay so far. I am poking around trying to learn what I can, but I haven't been able to figure out how to add posts from others onto the site without it coming up that I am the author. I found a plug in called Guest Post, but my designer says there are too many errors with it and she deleted it. Is there a way to take submissions from people and post them on my site with their image attached? I prefer not to let people have access into my site to post. I appreciate any help. Thanks!

    You can register them as a user of your blog. You can add it in yourself in the users section.

    Obviously don't use their real email, this would just be a 'dummy' account - once set up you won't even need to sign into it again.

    Once they are registered as a user, you can then assign them to be the author from within your account. You may need to turn on the author section within the posting screen, to do that you simply check the box from the 'screen options' tab near the top right from within the creat new post screen.

    Thanks! I saw this, but since the email field was required, I thought I would never be able to come up with as many legitimate email addresses as I might need. You may have just solved the problem!
