WT Co-authors

Description

Displays authors of a collaboration post in place where only one is shown by default. Uses custom fields (key=coauthor;value=user’s username; one per user). Note: If it doesn’t automatically display the co-authors you must manually add if(function_exists(wt_the_coauthors_link)): wt_the_coauthors_link(); endif; into your theme (in PHP <?php ?> brackets, of course).

Installation

  1. Upload wt-coathors.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. If your theme does not have the_author() template tag, manually add if(function_exists(wt_the_coauthors_link)): wt_the_coauthors_link(); endif; where you want it to appear (in PHP <?php ?> brackets, of course)
  4. Finish!
