Managing blog post authors

An author is a name attributed to content on your site, such as blog posts. Author names create bylines that tell visitors who wrote the content they're reading—either a person or a company name—and help distinguish between multiple contributors.

How author names appear depends on your version, template, and style settings. In general, author names display above or below the blog post content. In some templates, author names are always hidden.

The contributor who created the post is automatically set as the post's author. You can change the author manually to attribute a post to a different person or name.

Add authors

When you create a post, your name appears as the default option in the Author drop-down menu in blog post settings.

There are two ways to add an author:

  • Add contributors - Depending on their permissions, contributors can add and publish their own content. To add contributors, invite them to your site. After they accept the invitation, their name appears in the drop-down menu. The number of contributors you can have depends on your billing plan.
  • Basic authors - A basic author is a name you can assign to a blog post but isn't connected to a contributor account. For example, you could add your company name or a guest poster. You can add as many basic authors as you want.

For all profiles, we recommend using the same name in the Bio and Account tabs to ensure the name displays consistently. Which of these names displays varies by template.

Note: Contributors will see their own names as the default author of a post, which they can change manually by editing the post. There isn't a way to always have a basic author as the default author.

Change a post's author

You can change an individual blog post's author in the post's settings.

  1. Klicke im Hauptmenüauf Seiten, und dann auf eine Blog-Seite.
  2. Fahre mit der Maus über den Beitrag im Menü „Blog-Seite“, klicke dann auf und anschließend auf Einstellungen.
  3. In the Options tab, click Author.
  4. Choose from the list of names that you've added to your site.
  5. Klicken Sie auf Save (Speichern).
  1. Klicke im Hauptmenüauf Seiten, und dann auf eine Blog-Seite.

  4. Choose from the list of names that you've added to your site.
  5. Klicken Sie auf Save (Speichern).

  3. Under Options, tap Author.
  4. Tippen Sie auf den neuen Autor.
  5. Tippe auf Beitragseinstellungen und dann auf Speichern.
Note: There isn't a way to batch-edit blog posts to assign them a new author. Instead, update each blog post individually.

Edit an author's name

When you change an author's name, all posts assigned to that author will update with the new name. How you change an author's name depends on the author:

Hide author names from posts

Mit den meisten Templates können Sie den Autor in den Stileinstellungen aus- oder einblenden. Einige Templates verbergen immer Autorennamen. Informationen zu Anzeigeoptionen nach Template finden Sie unter Ausblenden der Metadaten eines Blogbeitrags.

If your version 7.0 template doesn't support hiding authors and you don't want to switch templates, there are other options:

  • Use a Summary Block on a Layout Page to create a blog landing page that doesn't display author names.
  • Add a basic author that has a more generic name, like the title of your blog.

Style author names

To style the color, font, and size of your Blog Page's author names:

  1. Klicke im Hauptmenü auf Design und dann auf Schriftarten.
  2. Klicke beim Schriftartenpaket deiner Wahl auf the-gear-icon.
  3. Click Meta to style the author font and size.
  4. Gehe zurück zum Design-Menü und klicke auf Farben und dann auf das Bleistift-Symbol auf deinem Design.
  5. Find the Blog section that matches your Blog Page layout (for example, Blog: Grid or Blog: Alternating) and use the Post Meta tweak.
  6. Klicke auf Speichern, nachdem du Änderungen vorgenommen hast.

The font of the author names on individual blog posts follows the Meta tweaks. To style the color of author names on blog posts:

  1. In the Design panel, click Colors, then click the pencil icon on your theme.
  2. Under Blog Post, use the Post Meta tweak.
  3. Klicke auf Speichern, nachdem du Änderungen vorgenommen hast.

Open Site Styles while on a Blog Page and look for Meta or Metadata tweaks. Every template family has its own Site Styles tweaks and options. If your Site Styles doesn't have meta tweaks, the metadata tags typically follow the body font's settings.

Tip: You may need to un-hide author names to see the tweaks.

Filter posts by author

Clicking an author's name takes you to a filtered page displaying all posts by the author on that Blog Page. To link to this page, use the dedicated URL that appears when you view the filtered author page in incognito mode.

Some templates display the author's name at the top of the filtered page.

You can help your visitors filter by post authors with an Archive Block. Clicking any name in an archive list takes you to the filtered page for that author.

  1. In the Archive Block editor's Content tab, choose your blog.
  2. In the Display tab, select Group By Author.
  3. Use the Layout menu to choose how it displays (List, Menu, or Index).

Sonstige Optionen

  • You can create a filtered RSS feed by adding author names as tags or categories.
  • Summary Blocks create a magazine-style grid of recent posts. Summary Blocks don't filter by author, but you can set authors to display with the Primary or Secondary Metadata drop-down menus in the Display tab.
