Co-Authors Plus
[resolved] Co-authors template tags (4 posts)

    I have spent way too much time trying to figure out where to Place the appropriate co-authors template tags in my template. I am using the Twenty-Ten template.

    Not being a developer I assumed that the word pluggin meant just that and that when I plugged it in it would work. Having to add this code and knowing what the code is and where it goes is proving to be a challenge to me.

    I would hate to have to pay my developer to add this code. So, I'm hoping you can give me the exact code needed for my template and tell me exactly where to install it. Telling me this, didn't help:

    To use them, simply modify the code surrounding all instances of the_author*() to something like the following example:

    if ( function_exists( 'coauthors_posts_links' ) ) {
    coauthors_posts_links();
    } else {
    the_author_posts_link();

    Thanks for your help with this. I really need this pluggin to work!

    I've updated the documentation to be a bit more clear and include an example for TwentyTen.

    I would hate to have to pay my developer to add this code.

    You should support your developer :) WordPress is where it is today because of developers who are passionate about what they do, and contribute much of their time for free. By hiring developers to do paid work, you're also supporting their ability to give back to the community (and provide plugins like Co-Authors Plus).

    Daniel, Thanks for the updated documentation. Hopefully I'll be able to figure it out. And, thanks for lecture on supporting my website developer :) You'll be pleased to know that I pay him thousands of dollars a year for the work he does on my site and the work I hire him to do for my clients. I absolutely agree with you about the tremendous value of a good website developer.

    Cheers!

    Hey Daniel,

    I'm trying to do the same thing but am a real novice. I have the co-authors-plus.3.0.5 installed. And I'm using the twenty ten 1.5 theme.

    I've been to:
    http://vip.wordpress.com/documentation/incorporate-co-authors-plus-template-tags-into-your-theme/#integrating-template-tags-into-your-theme

    and scraped the code for the twentyten theme. I've tried to paste it in the places I "think" it's supposed to go in my loop-single.php file but I'm almost sure I'm not pasting it correctly or in the right spot - then when I do and save/update the file, I keep getting an error message on the reloaded post page. I do not have access to a developer, except for you. Can you please help?

    Am I supposed to be swapping this out on the page???:

    <div class="entry-meta">
    <?php twentyten_posted_on(); ?>
    </div>
    <!-- .entry-meta -->

    Again, I'm really new to this stuff so I apologize.
