[resolved] Can I limit the authors on the drop down menu? (9 posts)

    With the Social Author Bio plugin, is there a way to exclude specific accounts from appearing in the drop down menu which contains the list of authors to choose from?

    I'm not sure what drop down menu you are speaking off. Can you describe it a bit more or provide a link to a screenshot?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    No response for a week so I'm going to mark this as resolved.

    Nick... I did not see the prior email notification for some reason. I have a screen shot showing the author pull down menu that only shows up when I log into an admin level account. How do I upload this screen shot so you can see it?

    They way that I would do that is to take a screen shot, add it your media library in WordPress and the past the URL to it here.

    Good idea.

    http://soleragroup.com/?attachment_id=6645

    Don't let the fact that the attachment has nothing to do with the soleragroup.com website confuse you.

    It is simply a place for me to turn the image into a URL.

    The red arrow points to the dropdown menu that I only see when logged into an admin level account.

    I need this dropdown menu to appear for editor level accounts as well.

    That drop down is not coming from Social Author Bio, I'm not sure what is responsible for that selection (or what it does with it). In the current version of Social Author Bio the only configuration inside the editor is if Social Author Bio is Enabled/Disabled for that particular post.

    Here is a screen capture showing the enable/disable config in the editor (from Social Author Bio).

    Oh. I thought the drop down list was from the Social Author Bio plugin. Please consider the ability to designate a "pen name" to be an enhancement request. That is my current need. I have a customer who wants some of their posts attributed to a pen name.

    I'll certainly put it on the list for a future version!

    Thanks for your input!
