How can i assign multiple authors to a post and only show posts by author.

Im currently using the following to get post by the current logged in user. But it only allows me to have one author.

$loop = new WP_Query( array( 'author__in' => $authors, 'post_type' => 'Contacts', 'numberposts' => 30, 'orderby' => 'date') ); 
while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post();
// -----

HI need to be able to assign any amount of authors and allow each user to see all post where they are the author.

Try this plugin it's the easy way of doing what you want co-authors-plus

  • link only answers are not real answers. In this case the link is not even to the plugin itself Apr 12, 2017 at 16:41

  • If you are going to recommend a plugin at least link directly to it ;) than you can explain or add additional resources on how to use it, but in general just having a link is not a good thing. You can add such recomendations as comments to the questions Apr 12, 2017 at 17:00
  • Ok I understand I will correct it right now Apr 12, 2017 at 17:02
  • @MarkKaplun I just updated the link Apr 12, 2017 at 17:05
