Co-Authors Plus
Co-author description pulled from wrong author (6 posts)

    This plugin has worked fine for me up until today. Some background: Sometimes it takes a while for a co-author to subscribe and get upgraded to an author. In the meantime, I will get his/her post up in draft form and ready to be published. Then when the author finally subscribes, I upgrade him/her and publish the post. So today, after adding a new co-author to a post, the link that is the co-author's name takes you to the author description for the first author. Also, the new co-author's name occasionally disappears from the post.

    When I upgraded to WP 3.01 a few months ago, I found that Role Manager didn't work. So I changed to Capability Manager. I don't know if the issue is WP 3.01, Capability Manager or Co-Authors Plus. I have deactivated Capability Manager and that had no effect.

    Some author page templates (including the TwentyTen author.php template file) get author info by using get_the_author_meta() with the 1st post attributable to that author.

    If the author whose archive is being displayed in NOT the 1st author on a co-authored post and that co-authored post is their most recent post, then their author page will NOT display their meta-info, but the meta-info of the 1st author on their last post.

    Hey thanks! That all makes sense to me but I don't know how to fix it. Is there a work around?

    There's a fix for this in v2.5

    We had to revert back to 2.1.1 because of the many more issues that occurred with 2.5.1. Can you post the a code fix for 2.1.1?
