I run a blog where most of the time, I post on behalf of Contributors, and simply assign the post to their name (most of our collaboration is via email / Microsoft Word). Asking them to post themselves would take added time/hassle, especially since many of them don't use WordPress.
Until now I've done this by creating a Contributor account for each new author. However this has the drawback of confusing them when they get email confirmation of a new account.
What I would like is to create a Contributor account that is tied to my own email address, or alternatively to somehow have them listed in the byline without having an account.
Is either idea possible, or is there another suggested way of doing this?
