  • Resolved cywoh


    Hello Daniel,
    I’ve tried to get the search to work, but I just can’t seem to get it to work. I used the code here. I am not sure if there is an improvement on that code. Maybe you could enlighten me on the same.
    I have one admin user on my website, and several guest authors. However, when I search for the one of the guest authors, it doesn’t return any results. And if I search for the admin, I get results that include the guest authors.
    I have looked for a similar issue under support, but I can’t seem to get any that is resolved.

    Kindly assist.

    That code snippet will only work when you have created WordPress users for your authors. Guest authors is using a different storage mechanism in the backend, and would require a bit of custom development to work as you’d like it to.

    Could you kindly assist me with that customization, please?

    Sorry, it’s outside the scope of the support I offer.

    Bummer!! 🙁
    Thank you for the ear, though. 🙂

    What is the scope of support you do offer?

    Bug fixes related to the plugin. Feature requests go into Github, where they’re prioritized against time involved, number of requests, and how badly I want to add it.


    I’m using Co-Authors Plus but I’m not being able to show more than one author on single posts.

    My original template goes like this:

    <div class=”mfield author”>Por: ” title=”<?php echo esc_attr(sprintf(__(‘Ver todos os artigos por %s’, DPTPLNAME), get_the_author())); ?>” rel=”author”><span style=”color: #bf1109; font-weight: bold; text-transform: uppercase;”><?php echo get_the_author(); ?></span></div>

    Thanks in advance!
