Contributor byline on blog – link leads nowhere
Have you already contributed to that blog? Until you do, nothing will link anywhere.
Hello, thanks for such a speedy response. I’ve just uploaded the first post, waiting for the blog owner to approve it.
Can I ask – seeing as she won’t be doing that for an hour or so – what will I see once it goes live and I have therefore contributed?
Thanks so much, Luci
and the answer would be….?!!
Thank you, Luci
Well, if you only have to wait an hour, shouldn’t it be live by now and you can see for yourself?
no, only thirty minutes in. Sorry to have aggravated you so much. Best, Luci
Has the blog owner approved it?
Yes, has done so now. Sorry, been out all day. It just goes through to an archive of my posts – i.e. the one just posted. What we want to try and do is get a link through to my blog from hers. Ho hum!! Thanks again for your help earlier, meant what I said about not meaning to have bugged you.
I’m contributing to someone’s blog but I never wait for her to approve the content of mine cause I’ve superpowers :)
Ah, that is not how the Author link works at WordPress.com. What you can do is have her put a text widget in the sidebar with a link to your blog OR you can put a signature in each post by hand with that link.
That’s brilliant information, thank you very much. Have a lovely rest of the evening. Best, Luci
Regardless of the theme, author bylines will only display now if there are at least two authors who both have at least one published post in the blog.
