We're starting a major set of improvements to the PublishPress Authors plugin. The goal of these upgrades is to add some key new features:
- More customizable author pages.
- The ability to display all of your authors on one screen.
- Better support for the WordPress REST API.
- More design and layout options for profiles.
- Categories for Authors, so you can group them into “Writers”, “Photographers”, “Researchers” and other groups.
The first step is to improve the shortcodes in PublishPress Authors. These changes will form the foundation of several more of these upgrades.
