we are a non-profit organization with limited budget.
We have a Wordpress website with magazine style theme.
At the present time, Wordpress assumes that AUTHOR is the same as the POSTER, who is a registered USER.
THIS IS NOT TRUE FOR A MAGAZINE.
In a magazine, the poster is the one who posts articles written by others. the POSTER is usually the admin who manages the website. The AUTHOR is the person who wrote the article. and send it to us for publishing.
What we need is to have a plugin to
- Make an AUTHOR database similar to CATEGORIES. We can add author when posting an article and manage AUTHOR like CATEGORIES.
- A widget to make a list of author on the sidebar. Drop down menu or full list.
- Display AUTHOR together with CATEGORY in the front page with the summary of the post.
- Display AUTHOR together with CATEGORY in the full article (single page)
It appears to me that you could hack the AUTHOR as used by Wordpress but making it distinct from the user ID to achieve our purpose.
whether you duplicate Wordpress' CATEGORY db for our "AUTHOR" db, or hack Wordpress' AUTHOR db for our AUTHOR db'S purpose, it's up to you.
**THE PLUGIN MUST BE COMPATIBLE WITH WORDPRESS 2.51 AND WIDGET THEMES INCLUDING THE THEME WE ARE USING.**
Also help me with modifying the font color for the title and article content. and insert the exert in the recent postings.
We don;t know how much time this task will take. If it require more time and more money, please bid accordingly.
thank you for your bidding
