Have you ever had that bright idea to write a collaborative blog post but then get to the ‘author’ stage and you can only actually add one? I know, it’s a real pain? Who do you choose? Do you just pick one author and then link to the others in the post? Don’t worry, there is a way to list them in the Author section in WordPress!

The Co-Authors Plus plugin, which is free, and we love free here at Brandogical, is a handy little beast that allows you to not only add multiple authors but also add template shortcode tags to your theme so you can list them however you want. Snazzy huh?

So now you don’t have to choose… everyone can get a link!
