Guest Authors for WordPress the Easy Way
Our Free Plugin
(Simply) Guest Author Name)
Our free plugin: Simply Guest Author Name, was developed to allow you to quickly add guest posts and articles to your web site without adding the authors as users. Our free version allows you to use the author’s gravatar image on a guest post and to link to their website.
Just what we needed
Just what we needed to assign the proper author when transferring a wiki that assigned the transferring person as the author of all entries. Also used when one person enters data for another. Very easy to use.

Works well and is free. Thank you!
I was looking for a free simple plugin to display my guest author's bios at the end of articles. After trying a couple, this plugin was the simplest to work with and didn't require a bunch of modification. Simple, clean and it works. Thank you.

Exactly what I needed and nothing more.

The plugin works and is simple, but lacks the ability to upload profile images. Not all guest authors have Gravatar accounts, so this is a significant issue. Other than that, the plugin works well.
