At the request of a random visitor to the
#wordpress IRC channel, I created a plugin called “Multiple Authors.”
The requester said that he and his wife collaborated on blog posts from time to time, and wanted a way of designating that there were two authors. Multiple Authors will keep track of what secondary authors edit a post, and add them on as authors. This part is automatic (although you are free to add authors by adding a meta_key of “other_author” and a value of their login name). There is also a template tag (to be placed right next to
<?php the_title(); ?>) that will display any extra authors, seamlessly.
Pretty simple, but kinda neat, eh? Leave suggestions and bug fixes over on its page.
