    Hi

    I have two issues I would like to change in the Novella theme.

    1. authors – the system currently requires authors (mentioned on the top of an article) to be added as users but all we want to do is publish an author’s name with the text instead of it automatically publishing under our own names.

    2. The logo (left) is now linking back to home of the novella template, but ideally we want it linking back to our own home page. Can’t seem to find where to change it.

    Please advise us on how this can be resolved. At the moment we are attaching our work email to a ‘user’ profile to make it look like the authors are posting their own texts but this is an unsustainable fix.

    Can you advise me how to change this?

    Happy to help!

    1. Are you referring to the author line below the title?

    2. Do you have a URL that you can share so I can check on this further?

    Great! Here is a link to our page: https://networkcultures.org/longform/

    Yes, the author line below the title. At the moment this is linked to our accounts in WP. We want to be able to add an author without giving them an account to our page/WP..!

    You can paste this into the Simple Custom CSS plugin:

    .novella-entry .novella-entry-mast .novella-entry-author {
    display: none;
    }

    .novella-collection-item .novella-entry-author {
    display: none;
    }

    Thanks that works!

    I want to be able to add a authors name in the same place and style. Is that possible as well?

    It sure is. If you go below the post editor you will see a section that is called Story Design and Author. Within the Author box you can select a different author. You could go ahead and create several other WordPress users as authors and then simply select which author you would like for that post. You can associate the post with a different user as an admin and never need to share login information with the authors.

    “1. authors – the system currently requires authors (mentioned on the top of an article) to be added as users but all we want to do is publish an author’s name with the text instead of it automatically publishing under our own names.”

    Hope that answers this question.

    Sorry for this….I see Story Design but I don’t see the Author in the post editor.

    What version of Novella and CMB2 as I cannot see that? Latest version is 1.3.1. Also, can you download the Co-Authors Plus plugin?

    Hi Miriam,
    Just to make sure I duplicated Michael’s instruction from scratch and I can see the Authors box above Story Design fine. Can you make sure the plugin is activated? The theme version mostly like should not matter because the appearance of Authors box should not depends on themes. (I can still see the Co-Authors box even if I switch the theme to any generic theme.)

    Yes, unfortunately it requires you to make a new account, but you can keep the account private, and simply add test emails of some variety since the accounts can then be accessed from the post to display the author. This is the easiest way to do it outside of custom development.

    Is there a way to work with the ‘guest author’ or is this not supported in the novella theme?
