Smartly Done Websites offers an affordable way for you to work with professionals, designers, programmers, and writers, to help you customize your new website to best suit your needs.
If you have a company website, you may decide to have your blog author always be the name of the company, or you can choose to feature the employee who wrote it. If you want to add a new blog author to your options, this tutorial will show you how.
Step 1: Click the “Blog” dropdown on the left-hand content menu. Hover over the “Authors” folder until three dots appear. Click them.
Step 2: The three dots will open a side-panel with the option to create a new blog author. Click this item.
Step 3: Name the page after the new author. Then scroll to the “Content” section.
Step 4: In the content section you can add an author bio and a picture of them.
Step 5: If you want to link the author to their social pages, scroll down farther on the content section until you find the social “Social Links” bar.
Step 6: When you are done adding information about your new author, press the “Save and Publish” button.
Step 7: Add a new blog post by going back to the left-hand panel, hover over the “Posts” folder and click the three dots that appear. Select the “Blog Post” option.
Step 8: Once you name your blog post and add the content, go to the “Settings” section. Next to “Author” is a box with “Add.” Click “Add.” Select the author you want to feature with the blog and press “Submit.”
Step 9: When you are done with your blog post, press “Save and publish.” Visit your new blog post to see the author listed at the bottom.
