    Hi Daniel.

    I'm wondering if it's possible to create extra fields in the 'Name' or 'About the Guest Author' sections of the backend?

    I've created some new fields in the 'Contact Info' section. No sweat. but I can't figure out to create new ones in these two sections?
    Furthermore. Is it possible to create more sections than the three already there?

    Great plugin by the way ;)

    All the best

    It's a custom post type so you can add metaboxes as you would any other CPT (e.g. via code or a plugin).

    I just used ACF to add a WYSIWYG bio field (default was too small/limited for the project). Just choose 'Post Type' = 'guest-author' in the Location settings.

    Hi Nick.

    Thank you for your reply.
    However I figured out how to do this in the functions.php.

    This is the solution, if anyone wonders.

    if ( in_array( 'all', $groups ) || in_array( 'about', $groups ) ) {
    $fields_to_return[] = array(
    'key' => 'favquote',
    'label' => 'Quote',
    'group' => 'about',

    So issue is solved :)
