[resolved] Feature request: create guest authors for existing users (2 posts)

    I've got 350-odd users that I want to "convert" to guest authors.

    I know that there is a "wp-cli subcommand" for 'create_guest_authors' but to be honest this is realm of science fiction for most of us. I got around this by copy/editing the 'create_guest_authors' function into my function.php and then running it in a sandbox template. Seemed to work OK. But...

    It would have been far better if this feature was formally managed through the plugin under the DashBoard. May I suggest this as a feature for future versions.

    It's good to learn! The installation process is pretty well-documented. Once you learn, it opens up a world of possibilities.

    It would have been far better if this feature was formally managed through the plugin under the DashBoard.

    There's a "Create Profile" link for every user in the users list. I probably won't add a bulk option to create profiles through the admin, as such a feature would likely run into performance issues.

    Hope this helps.
