How to Migrate From Bylines to Multiple Authors

In early 2018, PublishPress acquired Bylines, the modern multi-author plugin for WordPress.

Bylines allowed you to assign multiple authors to a post and publish articles from guest authors. Bylines represented the best-in-class of WordPress plugin development, with unit tests, PHP autoloading, and more.

We’re delighted to say that all those features have been merged into the Multiple Authors plugin.

Development of Bylines has stopped and we encourage all Bylines users to move to Multiple Authors.

The key thing to consider is how you will integrate Multiple Authors into your site. Whereas Bylines only allowed you to hard-code the author display into your theme, Multiple Authors has a lot more choices.

If you are an existing Bylines customer, I’d definitely recommend that you chat with us before moving to Multiple Authors. Please email help@publishpress.com and we’ll help you to move.
