[resolved] Does an author have to be a "user" of my blog? (5 posts)

    Hello, I have other bloggers who contribute posts to my blog. I wanted to use your plugin for their bios but I don't want them to have access to my blog as admins.

    Do my guest posters have to be set up as "users" of my blog? If so, I don't think this plugin will work for me. Thanks!

    For roles and capabilities please see this post here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities

    If you still doubt their honesty, you can always create guest author profiles yourself and post on their behalf, but that defeats the purpose of WordPress and the plugin.

    Hope this answers your questions. If not, don't hesitate to ask.

    Thank you for the quick answer!

    Now I'm using the plugin and having problems. It came up fine at first, but now it's doing this (see screen shot).

    It does this whether I have the plugin appear at the top or the bottom of content.

    Help?

    Sorry, but there's nothing I can do until I see that issue live on your website.

    You say it came up fine at first. What did you do afterwards? Did you activate any plugins?

    And if you haven't tried already, please do this:

    • Make sure WordPress, theme, framework and plugins are up to date
    • Disable all plugins (one by one) and pinpoint the one causing the issue
    • Switch to the default WordPress theme and check for the issue (If the problem disappears, then your theme is responsible and you need to contact theme developer)
    • Empty your cache

    It is suddenly working again. I didn't do anything and it's working. Strange. Thanks!
