    Yes, please!

    This is a great feature, I would love to include it in my website as soon as you get it available!

    You have also mentioned some time ago the intention to get an “user submitted reviews feature”, with “a page where you site’s visitors can go and fill out a book review form to submit a review to your website”. (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/custom-user-metadata/). This would be REALLY great, especially if there is a template where the administrator can control the fields a normal user can fill (some fields might be restricted to the administrator). Have you progressed here?

    One last question: is there any simple way to show the “author’s url” field you have added in the author taxonomy in the archive page? Currently, all my achive pages (including author) show the same info (name and description); I don’t really know how this field is used currently.

    Many thanks in advance!

    I had reached far on the user submissions idea but stop due some security concerns I had. There is always some risks involved with allowing the public to submit data to website, moreso with WordPress as it is such a large target for hackers and spammers.

    With that said, I do like the idea, so I will add it – it is just a matter of when. Plus, I plan to completely rewrite the plugin to support one-to-many relationships with books to reviews.

    As for the “author URL”, how and if it shows has to do with the theme you are using. Most likely it will need some edits to the theme’s archive template files.

    Thanks for the quick answer, Kemory!

    User submitted reviews are important to boost substantially the volume of reviews and participation of users; it is therefore important for any site to become really adopted! In terms of security, my take is that the key is to restrict the feature in two ways:

    1. Reviews should be included as draft and need to be approved by the administrator. As the reviews show in order of inclusion and can be deleted in bulk, eventual spams are a relatively small price to pay and the effects can be easily controlled.

    2. Administrators need to be able to control the fields the user can fill in the form. I would, for instance, welcome book details, synopsis, abstracts but would prefer to restrict the scoring for myself.

    With these two restrictions, I would surely be good to go. I’ve already included user submitted posts for regular posts (plugin: https://perishablepress.com/user-submitted-posts/). I would support enthusiastically the inclusion of this and the collections feature (which is working great in your demo site) in the next version, if possible! 😉

    Regarding author’s url, I agree that the restriction may be linked to the theme. I’ve spent some time trying to include lines on the theme’s archive.php, without success. For instance:

    $term = get_term_by( ‘slug’, get_query_var( ‘term’ ), get_query_var( ‘taxonomy’ ) );
    echo $term->name;

    works with name, description, count, term_id, slug, etc. but it does not work with rcno_author_taxonomy_url. Aby pointers?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Which theme are you using?

    Bam Pro.

    I was already able to include author pictures in the archive page using the plugin Taxonomy Images (https://br.wordpress.org/plugins/taxonomy-images/) and adding in the theme’s archive.php the line:

    print apply_filters( ‘taxonomy-images-queried-term-image’, ” );

    On author’s url, I am trying different alternatives with no success so far…

    https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/get_term_meta/

    $url = get_term_meta( $term->term_id, ‘rcno_author_taxonomy_url’, true );
    echo $url;

    I’ve added the function, but it does not work: still only the images are printed, as you can see in some pages in which I’ve included both fields:
