Hello!

Great theme! Is it compatible with the Co-Authors Plus plugin?

Hi,

We have not made any tests with the plugin you mention, you could make some tests if you require this plugin and see if it works.

Thanks

Hi Simon,

Thank you for your quick reply. We have tried using both but only one author gets mentioned in the author box below the article… Are there any other tests we could carry out on our side?

Kind regards

Hi,

It will require some modifications in the theme files, in order to display multiple authors. You will have to modify the post template file, that you are using. Like in this example for post template 1 (corresponding post template file is loop=single-1.php located in the main theme folder)

Replace that line of code with this code
https://pastebin.com/chADk3Xw
Make modifications to it (language) and the authors should be displayed

Hi Simion,

Thank you. We really appreciate your help. We have been able to insert all authors under the Title of the article. But, they do not display correctly: when there are more than 2 authors, the system outputs:

“Author1 and Author2 Author3 and”

We have been trying hard to solve the issue by ourselves with this tutorial but, well, we’re not developers… 😉

Also, is it possible to have all the authors appear in a separate author box below the article?

Hi,

You will need custom modifications and my colleague provided a good start above. Please note that we don’t provide custom services and if you don’t have the required knowledge I suggest to get someone to help you.

Thanks!

Hi Alin,

I understand there will have to be major modifications to be made to the theme in order to display Multiple authors… Thanks to all the team for your kind reply. Really enjoy the fact that this is an Open Source project (except for the premium). Hopefully we will also be able to contribute too.
