Support » How-To and Troubleshooting » add extra information to author byline
3 years ago
I have a multi author wordpress blog.
I am displaying the author avatar along with the byline in the post meta.
I would like to add the authors job title/ position along with the byline.
Have been looking and I am stumped without using custom fields, which I don’t want to do (have many authors, some of which balk at another step in posting).
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Without a custom field for the title and position, where would you pull the data from?
You have 1) store the data somewhere, 2)retreieve the data, 3)display the data.
Without storing the data as user meta (user custom field), where else would that data be retrieved from?
What I would actually like to do is to add an extra field to the user profile, then add the contents of that field to the byline.
