Assign multiple bylines to posts, pages, and custom post types via a search-as-you-type input box
i have site with multiple authors on page, but the archive of page is not showing on admin not unless i reshuffle the authors, looks like the database is not refreshing once author is added.
Turned out to be an essential plugin for my site and has worked great, especially with the Guest Author option. (My site's an academic one, where people have, say, co-authored papers but don't care to register with the site itself.)
Only the smallest caveat: anecdotally and via the Plugin Performance Profiler, Co-Authors Plus apparently uses the most memory of my plugins. So the same advice we all get when we have too many plugins and a fair amount of content...consider caching.
Works perfectly as long as you aren't afraid to dive into php and theme files.
It is a nice idea but I can't get it to work with the Twenty Eleven Version 1.5 theme. It appears that if you want it to work with Twenty Eleven, there is a lot of code you need to rewrite somewhere (file not identified since the documentation refers to lines in the single.php file that may have been in an earlier version of the Twenty Eleven theme but are now nowhere to be found) and in the function.php file.
The documentation says it works without having to create dummy author profiles in your account but it depends on having the ability to have guest author profiles in WordPress.com, which you can't do unless you pay thousands of dollars for the WordPress AVI service in order to get the Guest Author Profile tool. Plus I don't see how those profiles can be ported over to a WordPress.org blog.
I did try reading several forum threads about it and tried some of their code but I usually ended up with an entirely blank page or the first author's name repeated such as "...by Author-1-First Name Author-1-FirstName and Author-1-First Name". Author-2 is not included.
Author boxes only show up when there is a single author. Nothing shows up if there are two authors.
I spent a lot of time trying to figure it out but ended up very frustrated. It needs more work to give it user friendly settings and to work with modern themes.
Needs to customized the functionality of this plugin slightly and found the code very easy to navigate and extend.
I really like the personal comments through the methods.
Works great and as expected!
Thank you very much for making your plugin extendable!
Was a little weird at the first time but it works perfectly. I'm saying this because I had to look in the plugin source code to make it do what I needed to but I've succeeded.
Very nice plugin!
I am not sure why "create profile" was included as a link right beside the edit user profile button. It just seems to be confusing UI. Other then that it is a great plugin that we have used successfully a couple time now.
easy to install and configure....can't say any better than that!
The plugin does exactly what it says, but unfortunately it disables the Author field on the QuickEdit page and does not provide an alternative method to batch chance authors. I can't live without that so I can't use this plugin.
Really nice but don't hesitate to hotfix your plugin with and official update when needed.
