Setting up Authors

Only some Themes will show the Author – Of the three most usable themes, Vapor does but Mini and Phantom don’t so check your chosen theme first before deciding whether you need to set up Authors.

The Author container is created with a “Child Items” tab containing a single obvious button Create Articulate Author

This opens a multi-tabbed item but only the main “Author info” tab is used

  1. Set a short name (the blog name field in the blog entry has no selector so a memorable name helps)
  2. Optionally:
    • upload an image – clip to circle constraints apply
    • set a URL to the authors page or Twitter stream
    • add a short bio

You can add as many authors as you need – they will be shown in a table in the Authors section.
