PublishPress Authors Common Issues

This guide has solutions to some common issues with PublishPress Authors.

Seeing More than One Author Area

Many themes will add their own author boxes under posts.

If you are seeing more than one author box, you will need to find the setting inside your theme and disable that extra box.

Changes to the WordPress Interface

The PublishPress Authors plugin does make some small changes to the WordPress admin interface. This is done to make the plugin easier to use and to avoid confusion.

One key change is that PublishPress Authors removes the default “Author” dropdown from inside the WordPress editing screen. This dropdown is shown below, but you won’t see it with PublishPress Authors installed.

The only places to add and remove authors is this metabox, or the “Quick Edit” option.
