Known Issues

Molongui Authorship plugin works great with just about every plugin and theme, and especially with the most popular ones. However, some plugins are incompatible with Molongui Authorship or they might cause some functionality from Molongui Authorship not to work as expected.

Here we listed the known plugin conflicts with Molongui Authorship and added an alternative to almost each of them. If you experience compatibility issues with other plugins please let us know about them.

Creativo theme

Creativo theme filters the ‘add_metadata’ function so there cannot be any post meta with the same key, not allowing non-unique keys. Which is required by our plugin and many other.

ISSUE: When adding multiple authors to a post, only the first and last ones on the list are saved.

FIX: We have already reported the issue to Creativo theme’s developer team and they confirmed us that the issue will be addressed in the next update. Latest theme version 6.5 still has issue unfixed. If you face this issue, please contact us and we will apply a patch to temporally fix it until they fix theme’s core.

WordPress Popular Posts

ISSUE: The author name displayed on the list of popular posts is wrong. It displays the name of the author of the current post.

WORKAROUND: Because of how WordPress Popular Posts is coded, there is little we can do. So if you want to use both plugins, the only workaround we can think of is to configure that plugin to not display the author name. We know that’s not a solution, but it is the best we can offer. To do so, just go to Appearance > Widgets. There, go edit your WordPress Popular Posts widget and uncheck the “Display author” checkbox under the “Stats Tag settings” section.


This plugin is not listed on the WordPress Plugin Repository, but on GitHub. It allows you to add a post author without the need to register them as users in your site, so there is no really need of it when using Molongui Authorship Plugin, which already has that feature.

ISSUE: Author archives display every post rather than only those authored by the user being displayed.

WORKAROUND: Disable Guest-Author Plugin. Molongui Authorship Plugin already features a guest author functionality, so there is no need to use another plugin for that matter.
