This plugin will improve detection of compromised accounts with email notifications about logins from new devices. When a user logs in from a device previously unseen (as detected with cookies), an email will be sent to administrative users on the site.
Bulk User Management allows a set of specified users to manage permissions across all your sites. Users from every site in your network are displayed in a list and can be added to or removed from any of your sites. Any users that aren’t currently in your network can still be invited to any of your blogs through the normal invite process. After they accept, they can be managed in bulk across the network.
To enable the plugin, you will need to pass an array of user logins to wpcom_vip_bulk_user_management_whitelist(). Bulk User Management will only be available for these users and they will be able to manage all the users in your network regardless of their specified capability on those sites.
To manage users, use the checkboxes to select which users to manage and pick an action from the “Bulk Actions” dropdown. This will reveal a bulk edit section in the table. Select the sites that the changes should apply to and pick a role if necessary. Clicking update will apply the changes and refresh the page.
The following are some screenshots showing step-by-step how the bulk editing flow works.
Easily save an Author’s social media information with their Guest Author profile, as well as attribute Tweets sent from the WordPress.com Sharing Tools to the author that wrote the post, simply by checking the appropriate box on their profile page.
Additionally, Co Authors Plus Social Pack allows marking the Author as a ‘Related’ account to be suggested by Twitter once a post has been shared, making it even easier for your site’s visitors to engage with your authors.
Since all fields are loaded with Guest Author objects, retrieving social media info is as easy as:
Co-Authors plus enables you to add multiple authors to posts, pages, and custom post types via a search-as-you-type input box.
Additionally, with this plugin, you can add writers as authors without creating WordPress user accounts. Simply create a guest author profile for the writer by going to Users→Guest Authors in your Dashboard’s sidebar menu. Click “Add New” and fill in the fields:
Then, assign the Guest Author as you normally would.
You can even map the Guest Author to an existing WordPress.com user account on your site, so that you (as a site administrator) can control the bio and user information that appears for that WordPress.com user account. This is useful if an employee that writes for your blog leaves your organization, or if one of your writers has a personal site on WordPress.com and their bio on your site should appear differently than it does elsewhere.
How do I set it up?
Once you’ve activated the plugin, you’ll notice a new “Authors” module below the Visual Editor when you create or edit a post or page.
To add an author, search for their username. To remove one, click the remove link.
Co-authored posts appear on each co-author’s archive page and in each author feed, and each co-author may edit the posts. Note that co-authors who have the contributor user role may only edit posts if they have not been published.
If your theme does not display bylines, this plugin does not actually add a visible byline to each post. For custom bylines, try the Byline plugin.
