The Loop Object in PublishPress Authors

The PublishPress Authors plugin allows you to create custom author layouts.

authors is an iterator object containing the list of authors. You should use it for building the loop of authors:

{% for author in authors %}
    <span class="pp-multiple-authors-layout-{{layout}} author_index_{{ loop.index }}">
        <a href="{{ author.link }}" class="{{ item_class }}" rel="author">{{ author.display_name }}</a>{% if loop.index < authors|length %},{% endif %}
    </span>
{% endfor %}

You can use the instruction “for” and set the name of the variable that will receive the author instance on each iteration. Inside the loop you have a special variable loop.index which returns the index of the current iteration, but using it is optional.
