Guest Author plugin allow you to add authors to posts without registering them as users.
Sometimes we have blogs of different authors, but we are not interested to register them as wordpress users. In this case usually we will create some custom fields and add those details.
With this plugin we are implementing a common way to do that.
Here we listing all authors together at one place using a custom post type. We can add full details of those authors, like bio, social media links, job details, contact details and photo.
Then we need to check where we want to(custom post types, pages) display those authors, then we can select those authors from each post type easily.
You can add details of all authors in the author listing section(custom post type) and select those author in posts, post types and pages.
To display the author box two options are available, automatically display after the post contents(the_content()) and using shortcode.
Once you selected posts type in which you want to display authors, a list of dropdown with authors will be listed on the respective post types.
Then you can select authors for those posts. So after contents those authors will be displayed as a box.
To display it automatically, check the option on the plugins settings page, so it will display after page contents or post contents.
To use the shortcode use : [guest_author]
Using this shortcode [guest_author] in widgets or sidebar, of single post types or pages, it will display the author of that post there.
