Author management

Authors are entities that literally are recorded as having authored some entry on your website. Authors are distinct from normal member profiles- in fact, there is nothing to say an author of an entry is even present on your website (it may have been submitted by a member, but authored by a company, for example). i.e. There is no guarantee that an author of an entry is going to have a member account on the system.

The following types of content support the author system:
  • news
  • downloads
Association between authors and members is supported, either automatically by sharing a common name (author=username) or by manual configuration. If Conversr (the inbuilt forum and member system) is used then this binding is strongest as a link to a member's associated author profile (if it exists) is presented on said member's profile screen.
