I'll take a look at that. Thanks!
We're using WordPress as a CMS for this site. It's a medical site (cancer research) that needs to attribute certain pages' content to authors at the top, but not every page. So I can't put it in the template. I need to basically to only add it to the top of a page if that page needs the author's info at the top.
With that said, the admin section needs to stay clean of people who aren't actual users of the site. These people won't actually be logging in or submitting the content. The only way I would use the built-in user function would be if I could create a new role for them that gets rid of all the current author fields (easy enough), doesn't require an email address, and has only a few custom fields that I dictate.
When looking at all that, it just seems like this data really should be a custom post that I relate to the pages as needed. What do you think?
