  • I run a multi-author blog where any registered member can log in and write a post, and save it either as a Draft or Pending. However, only I can publish. The website currently has 1,475 published posts, almost every one by a different user.

    At times I need to email an author about something, maybe to suggest a change to the post, or whatever. I would like to be able to see the author’s email when I view their Draft or Pending post. How can I do this?

    I don’t want the email to be visible to the public. Only to me, the Admin, when I view the Draft.

    What I have to do right now is make a note of the author’s name, then go to Users and do a search. And it doesn’t always work. For some reason the username doesn’t always come up. In any case it’s a cumbersome process.

    Surely I’m not the only Admin who would like to be able to easily email my authors? There must be a plugin or simple hack for this?

    Thanks in advance for your time and attention.
