Support » Fixing WordPress » adding new field under “author”

  • so this is the question i have. the answer, im assuming, would involve also recoding the backend.

    In addition to having an option to select AUTHOR for each post, how can i also add a field where i can type in the name of the photographer? for each post i want to be able to credit whoever the photographer was that provided the photos on my website. currently i am just using a blockquote at the end of each post but im looking to have something that will present a better layout.

    i dont know how to code this but i am going to try and find where the author script is on the backend, maybe duplicate it, and rewrite it to reflect what i want????

    please help this is the last thing i need done before i continue to launch my website. thanks

  • What you’ll want to do is to use custom fields. The More Fields plugin can make the entering part easy, but you’ll need to add a line or two of code to your theme’s template files.

    Let’s say that you name your custom field “photog”. The code you’ll have to add will look something like this:

    <?php if ( post_custom('photog') { ?>
    Photos by  <?php post_custom('photog'); ?>
    <?php } ?>

    Make sure that wherever you put this code, it is inside The Loop.

    How do I make the content into a link like the Author?
