Author Customization

Author Customization expands core author management with features such as per-post author information and rich user bio editing.


Fixed PHP tag syntax for rendering the rich editor.


Fixed bug causing author info not to be saved to post meta if the user doesn't have permissions to edit other users' posts and pages.


  • Full support for WordPress 3.9 and TinyMCE 4.0
  • Fixed the plugin upgrade process to ensure deprecated settings are upgraded, and upgrades run more smoothly for all future versions
  • Option to turn WYSIWYG on or off has been removed. WYSIWYG is on unless the system or user cannot support it.
  • General code cleanup and minor bug fixes


The plugin has been completely rewritten to be object-oriented, in preparation for new features being added in the future, and to make it run more efficiently.

The plugin options have been restructured as well. Whe you upgrade, your current settings should be ported to the new structure. If you notice any strange behavior, check the plugin settings page.

Note: this plugin has some incompatibilities with WordPress 3.9. These will be fixed before the official release of 3.9, and will be noted in the changelog.


Fixed bug that threw a "Missing Argument" error when creating a new post.


  • Bug fix: WYSIWYG on Edit Profile page was not showing full formatting.
  • Bug fix: Calling profile display name and description when no post-specific info was available could result in fatal error.
  • Bug fix: WYSIWYG editor settings was called improperly for profile page editor.


  • Added option to update the author's user profile with the data entered in the post author info fields.
  • Bug fixes


  • Bug fix: changes made to author info after a new post author was selected were not being saved because the server was not being told whether JavaScript was active.
  • Bug fix: "loading" spinner image displayed when a new post author is selected was being shown out of proportion.
