How to display contributor bio (4 posts)

    Hi group,

    I've seen articles on how to display an author's bio, but what about a contributor? I would like to use guest authors, but would like the option to review the article before being published. Outside of obviously trusting the person not to publish before I look at it, any thoughts on how to do this?

    I think you are looking for "Contributor"

    Nsathees, I didn't make this real clear....

    Looking at how WP handles roles, there are two different roles I could use for guests writing on my blog: authors or contributors. I would like to use authors, but don't want to allow them to publish without me viewing it, so I would use contributors. That leaves me with the question i was trying to ask: I want to be able to show a contributors bio at teh end of each post, but don't know how. Is this possible? I know it is with the Author role, but not sure about the Contributor role.

    My author-bio plug-in will add the bio for whoever is listed as the author of the post.
