Multi Author Plugins and About author help

Hi,

We are about to launch our company's blog. I just wish to know the following.

1. How do I accept guest posts and show the guest author in the end of the post? i use elegant themes.

Normally the gravatar of the admin and bio is shown at the end right. Now for a guest author's post how do i set this?

2. What is the Correct work flow for accepting guest posts and posting it?

is it like a. Have a page for submitting articles with guidelines
b. Edit it and post it
c. Now struck with question 1

Or a. Give the guest author a contributor access ?

Please advice. Im bit confused.

3. Can you list plugins that are useful for Multi author blog?

thanks

    Hello again @CatMan, I hope you're well today!

    1. How do I accept guest posts and show the guest author in the end of the post? i use elegant themes.

    You could use Gravity Forms to add a form on your frontend where your guests will be able to submit their posts: http://www.gravityforms.com/

    Normally the gravatar of the admin and bio is shown at the end right. Now for a guest author's post how do i set this?

    Normally the gravatar is not displayed at all!
    If on your theme it is, then this is a feature of your theme so I would advise you to contact your theme developer for that question as it completely depends on their implementation. :slight_smile:

    Using Gravity Forms you should be able to create a page, add your guidelines there, and the form below them.

    3. Can you list plugins that are useful for Multi author blog?

    I would advise you to read this article from our blog: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wordpress-multiauthor-plugins/
