The slug must correspond to [first name – last name] or for companies

For each author you must enter

Author  Feeds

For the setup of each author you should do:

  1. Control link and RSS Feed for each blog, please follow the procedure here 
  2. Create a post category for each blog (see more in syndication plugin).
    Create one or more author for each blog  (syndication blogs have multiple authors)
  3. Verify if we put the author on the homepage

Author Login

Currently we have a new role, which will be assigned to authors which we will create them profiles. It is called Author Login

Their current capabilities are:

  1. Edit Profile
  2. Add Posts, Videos, Audios
  3. Edit only own Posts, Videos, Audios
  4. Upload files
  5. Review comments on thier Posts, Videos, Audios

User logins

User Login Url is https://snbchf.com/wp-login/

For blogs is the same.


Demo user

User: MarkChandler

Password: stamen’s email

Currently we have IP protection on the websites.

Solution 1:

We disable the protection, so can everyone access our website.

In this case we need to change all passwords with stronger and disable login function for all current users, which are not part of the team.


Solution 2:

Create a full profile inside SNBCHF, so they don’t have access to wp-admin.

There is a plugin which can be used. Link here

Estimation: 2-3 days
