21 Great Plugins to Manage Multi-Author Blogs Efficiently: This is an interesting collection of plugins to manage multi-author blogs and add extra visibility to your co-authors. Weblog Tools Collection is a multi-author blog that is put together by highly dedicated and talented authors in various parts of the planet. We collect and put together news, information and articles throughout a 24 hour period and are probably watching over the blog and the comments in one way or another. We rarely ever meet face to face and tend to communicate via IM, email and a very rare phone call from time to time.

Some of the plugins mentioned in this list are popular such as Role Manager, which is very useful in and of itself. However, there are others that sparked immediate interest in my. The ability to add co-authors to a post would be quite cool, as would the ability to add quick information about the particular author to the various posts. Many of the larger multi-author blogs such as Mashable and TechCrunch already do this (I am not sure how, but I assume there are some custom plugins involved) and now you can do the same.

Speaking of multiple authors, are you a passionate plugin picker and a theme tamer? If you are not afraid to speak to thousands of people in an instant, have confidence in your writing abilities and are interested in breaking into the blogging world with aplomb, we would like to hear from you.

    my favorite of these is the Gravatar plugin for multiple authors.

    Even as a single author blog owner, I have a need for this, because I have always thought it would be cool if the author gravatar could be displayed next to the title of the page, like I’ve seen in multiple author blogs on different blogging platforms by default.

    I’ve always wished that functionality was built into wordpress, or the gravatar function in WP was globalized, so you could use it not only in comments, but posts, pages, sidebars, wherever you wanted it to appear…but unfortunately, its never been the case, and I’ve been looking for AGES for a plugin just like this, and now I found one. thanks so much.

    Multi Author Blogs are not used widely aren’t they? So are these plugins really stable enough from users point of view?
