Building a Multi-Author Blog with WordPress

Posted: 18 Nov 2008 02:00 AM CST

Because WPHacks.com is a multi-author blog, it seems like at least once every week I get an email from our readers asking for more information about how to set up a multi-author blog.   How do you set one up?  How do you find people to write for you?

Over the past year I’ve written about a variety of tools, hacks, and plugins which anyone can use to build their WordPress installation into a WordPress blog, but they are scattered around a little bit.   If you’re looking for a consolidated post which provides a lot of this information in one place, I’m going to recommend a recent post over at Hongkiat which provides 35 tips and tricks to manage your multi-author blog.

A few notable plugins which I have not covered here yet:

  • Co-Authors Plugin - Gives you the ability to assign multiple authors to a post.
  • List Author Widget - Displays a list of authors in your WordPress Sidebar Widgets linking to the authors.php page.
  • Draft Notification - Emails the admin whenever a new draft is saved or post is pending approval.
  • Author Advertising - Allows revenue sharing among blog administrators.   Works with a number of advertising programs, including AdSense, Yahoo Publisher Network, etc.
