Author Alias (3 posts)

    I've been trying to find a plugin or something to add author aliases much like you can do in Joomla. I add a lot of old church writings to the site which I would love to display as being written by the actual authors instead of my personal username on the blog.

    Any ideas?

    Assuming there's no plugin that would work, you could consider:

    1. Create those authors as users, then edit the Posts and make the post author one of those users.
    2. Use Tags or Categories
    3. Use Custom Fields (Using_Custom_Fields)

    This is an example like i could do this with Custom Fields.

    i made a Custom Field Called Author-Alias and with this code, you can show it in your website.

    <?php $Alias = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'Author-Alias', true); ?>
    Author : <?php if ($Alias == "")the_author_posts_link(); else echo $Alias; ?>
