Genesis Co-Authors Plus

Description

Enables full support for the Co-Authors Plus plugin in Genesis.

You need to have the Co-Authors Plus plugin installed for this plugin to work properly. The Co-Authors plugin allows you to add more than one author to a particular post.

The Genesis framework has an in-built function to display an author box, and the Genesis Co-Authors plugin enables
the Genesis author box to detect co-authors and display them in additional author boxes.

With this setup, you can create guest authors without creating a user profile for them, just create a ‘Guest Author’ via the Co-Authors Plus plugin, and include that guest author in your post. Genesis Co-Authors Plus will then take care of displaying the guest author/s on the front end.

To enable the Genesis author box please follow the instructions on this website.

Reviews

Still Works (WordPress 4.5.2)

Needed to support multiple authors on a Genesis Child Theme.

The excellent Co-Authors Plus plugin was the first leg then got struck with showing multiple Author Boxes on Genesis until I came across the Genesis Co-Authors Plus plug-in which was last updated 2 years ago as at then. Thankfully, it worked smoothly without any stress.

Good job.
