Anonymize Data

When Show Full Info is No then we anonymize the data of the user.

  • Author first name and last name gets abbreviated, e.g. M.T. for Marc Townsend
  • Short and Long Biography: is not shown, but text “Author affected by GDPR law”
  • Later function to be discussed: Show a link to source of the biography (e.g. his blog, LinkedIn, …) with the text “Link to Biography (Economicblog is not responsible for the content of external websites).



Author login

We will need a new simple user GUI, where the user can enter his biography and personal data.

To be verified if this is already available in WordPress.
