Support » Plugin: Guest Author » Author’s name not showing on admin page for Custom Post Types

  • Resolved yewzy


    The actual author’s name (NOT guest author) is not showing on the posts page in the admin dashboard. When I deactivate the plugin, the names appear perfectly. For clarification, we did not input any guest authors in custom posts.

    The authors’ name (and guest author) appears in normal posts and pages. The issue only occurs in custom post types. I suspect that I’ll have to ‘support’ this plugin in the ‘supports’ array.

    I believe this is a fairly recent issue as it does not occur when I first started to use this plugin.

    Thank you for the reply @markns.

    To help with your troubleshooting, I’m able to replicate this issue by deactivating all plugins and only using 1. Custom Post Type UI and 2. Guest Author.

    Upon further inspection, the authors name does show on some CPT.

    I have 3 CPTs, two of those (essay, read) doesn’t show the author name, but one does (video).

    Here are the CPT settings for your reference:
