Support » Plugin: Liveblog » Change author

  • Hi! I’m trying the new multiple authors feature in a liveblog test post but it doesn’t seem to work. Is there something we should check out before trying it?

    I’ve tried both changing the author and adding multiple authors in each liveblog update.

  • Hi.

    Are you trying to get multiple authors on the same post? Or are you having troubble getting more than one author to show up in the author list?

    I am using the 1.8 beta version, and the multiple authors work fine for me on that. I also use the Allow Multiple Accounts plugin to create more authors in WP, and the WP User Avatar plugin to assign the users different avatars.

    Looks like this for me:

    I can select multiple authors from the list in the entry box, but it makes no difference: they don’t show up in the published update and when I edit a published update they aren’t there.

    Okay.

    I’m not familiar with that problem, but there seems to be an issue with contributors in the latest version of the plugin: https://github.com/Automattic/liveblog/issues/415

    If this is what causes the problem, it will probably be fixed at some point.

    Have you tried to test with an earlier version? Multiple authors worked perfectley for me in th 1.8 beta 1: https://github.com/Automattic/liveblog/releases

    Ah, thanks! No, I tried only in stable 1.8. I’ll wait for the fix then. Thank you!

    I’ve done a lot of modification on the css part (removed the author name, just showing the author avatar, and other stuff), but multiple authors on one entry looks like this for me, on 1.8 beta 1:
