I know I can add users and I already have the Co-Authors plug-in and it's letting met add two authors but only one is displayed on the page.

for reference, this is what displays at the top of my post, but I need another author to show up as well

    You'll probably need to create a child theme to be able to show more than one. You might ask the Co-Authors developers if they have a recommended way to display the additional authors.

  • To be clear ... Are you using the original "Co-Authors" plugin, or the newer "Co-Authors Plus" plugin? I ask because the newer plugin has a potential solution. Sep 26 '19 at 20:55
  • Thank you! I believe I'm using the original, but I will check.

I am unfamiliar with the original. They may also have something similar to the new "Co-Authors Plus". You would need to review that code for "apply_filters", "add_actions" or just global functions like those in "Co-Authors Plus".

Meanwhile, you might investigate migrating to the new version of "Co-Authors Plus". They offer a template tag, and pretty detailed instructions for how to use it.

Good luck!
