[resolved] Function to automatically pull custom field for guest author name? (2 posts)

    If I can describe this properly: is there any way to write a function to alter the built-in function displaying a post author's name so that if it's a guest post it automatically displays that custom field as the author rather than the WordPress user being used to handle guest posts?

    In other words, I'm looking for a way to not have to edit theme files or make a child theme in order to edit theme files, and just have this go entirely from the plugin, or the plugin plus a plugin that lets you add custom functions.

    Thanks!

    It should be possible to write such a function.. it's an interesting idea and I'm considering adding it as a feature in a future version. Thanks for the feedback!
