    I have two authors working on my site but I am the admin. Is there a way to add an author? I saw a place to add a user but I can’t find it now and it looked like the user has to have a wordpress blog or be in the WP community. If I can’t add an author, can I hide the author using CSS in the REGULUS theme?

    of course you can have an author silly,

    dashboard > users > click on the users you want to be an author > goto the drop down menu that says “change role to” > click on change

    bada bing bada boom and…uh…bada-your done :)

    BUT remember, when you first invite a writer for your blog, they are added as a contributor by default so you have to go in and change their role to and author

    The person is not a user yet. Do they have to have a wp blog? they don’t.

    No they don’t have to have a blog but they do have to have an account. Please review the FAQ on adding contributors

    Can you tell me where that is? It is alwas more effective to give a link. I don’t see it in the support pages.
