Edit a Guest Author

Single Edit

Editing a guest author is as easy as editing a post. In order to edit a guest author you need admin or editor permissions.

  1. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard
  2. Go to the Guest Authors page. Unless you changed its location, it will be displayed as a top item on your admin menu
  3. You will be presented with a list of all authors in your site. Click on the name of the guest author you want to edit
  4. The edit-guest screen will open. Apply all the changes you need
  5. Click on the Update button to save the changes
  6. That’s it!

You need admin or editor permissions to be able to edit guest authors. If you don’t have either one of those roles, you won’t even have the Guest Authors item on your menu.

Bulk Edit

The bulk options in WordPress are a great time saver. When some of your guest authors share common information, you can edit them all at once.

  1. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard
  2. Go to the Guest Authors page. Unless you changed its location, it will be displayed as a top item on your admin menu
  3. You will be presented with a list of all guest authors in your site. Check the box towards each guest author you want to edit
  4. Select Edit as the Bulk Action you want to carry on. Then click on the Apply button.
  5. Update the information you need
  6. Click on the Update button to save the changes
  7. That’s it!
