Show author information on post types not depending on WordPress users for galleries, expositions, content offered for/by third parties, etc.
"Tessa Authorship" allows to set and handle authorship and relations with every WordPress content that exists on your site. This allows you to present works by other people, think of an online gallery, for instance. You know best, where Tessa Authorship could help you with your content, once you grasped the idea behind. Tessa Authorship offers a lot for your imagination. You may use it in many other context not related to mere authorship reflection.
"Tessa Authorship" is a spin-off from the development and design work related with the Tessa theme but does not depend on it. Tessa is a gallery, exposition and portfolio theme which you can see in action on TakeBarcelona. This will be the home for the plugin as well.
"Tessa Authorship" relates authorship information back and forth, allowing to show authorship information on entries of all kind of post types, whereas the related author's entry allows you to show posts that relate with the author.
Themes may incorporate template files for the authorship post-type, e.g. archive-authorship.php, single-authorship.php and content-authorship.php if desired. The look and feel of the output in widgets and content is all up to you via css or by manipulating the results via the implemented filters.
"Tessa Authorship" offers a second thumbnail on the authorship custom post-type to add the author's image as well as a second featured image for all activated post-types. You have to enable this functionality explicitly.
Interaction with "Tessa Authorship" to establish relations can be enabled on a per post-type basis in the settings section.
A whole lot of code used in "Tessa Authorship" is based on a combination, revision, rewrite and adaptation of two great WordPress plugins: "WooThemes Testimonials" and "BAW Manual Related Posts". Many thanks. The original authors may find improvements as well as deteriorations of their code like walkers, multiple choices in the widget for categories and tags, etc.
Nevertheless: "Tessa Authorship" is unique. For this reason you may use both, "WooThemes Testimonials" as well as "BAW Manual Related Posts" together with "Tessa Authorship" to enhance your WordPress installation.
"Tessa Authorship" comes bundled with the "Multiple Posts Thumbnails" class and uses it without activating it as a plugin. If it detects the plugin, it will fallback gracefully and use the plugin instead of the bundled class.
"Tessa Authorship" reflects on fusion, collaboration, honesty, interaction, teamwork and a lot of more things not to mention here. "Tessa Authorship" is a product arriving to you from Barcelona, Catalonia aka Spain. Give it a try and spread the word.
"Tessa Authorship" includes translations for German and Spanish.
