Guest authors created with the Co-Authors Plus plug-in are not displayed at the end of blog posts in Customizr. Here is the site in question:

The Enable Co-Authors Filters plug-in is active.

Authors display correctly when set to Commons users, but not when set to guest authors created in the plug-in. See the published posts here for examples of authors not displaying:

See this unpublished test post for an example of a Commons author displaying correctly:

Hi Gina,

It looks like guest authors are working correctly. For your linked page: The second post, "Reflection Paper on Intersectional Identities", is by a guest author:

It looks like your site has a mixture of both real users and guest authors. Perhaps you are assigning the wrong author to some of the posts? You might want to audit your list of guest authors to ensure you have the proper ones assigned:

If there is still an issue, can you clarify what the problem is for specific pages or guest authors?

Hi Raymond,

Guest authors are not working correctly. I have done extensive testing with switching between Commons authors and guest authors. The correct author is assigned to a post regardless of whether the author is a guest or a Commons author; however, the author bio is only displayed at the bottom of the post for Commons authors, not for guest authors. See my links to examples above.

Oh, I see what you mean now.

Guest authors are working correctly. It's just that the guest author's bio is not displayed at the end of the post. I'll take a look to see what is possible.

Hi Gina,

I've put up some preliminary code on production to address the guest author bio issue at the end of a post page. Let me know if you spot any issues.
