Support » Plugin: Co-Authors Plus » Author Search – Not Working for Single Author Posts

  • Resolved jlschillinger


    Love this plug-in, but just recently since the latest WP update, the search capabilities when editing a Post have stopped working.

    The metabox appears, but neither suggested authors appear below text field and there’s no way to manually add just by entering the name.

    Strange thing, this only happens with Posts that have a single author. If the Post already has multiple authors, the plug-in works fine. I can search, add new, remove, etc.

    Single or multiple authors appear in the themes/templates without a problem.

    I figured out my problem, just in case someone else overlooked this seemingly obvious problem (to me now):

    It seems my issue has nothing to do with the update, but that my users I was attempting to add were assigned with the Subscriber user role, which is not included in the Co-Authors query. Users must be a Contributor or above. I changed all my subscribers to contributors and now they all appear as a search result.
