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.
