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.
This plugin does the job simply and efficiently. I've tried others, and most are over-complex for my needs. The developer is very quick to respond to support issues on the WordPress plugin forum. Highly recommended!

Had the issue on multiple [...]WooCommerce installs. Read more »

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.
