How to Manage Authors

1. How to Add an Author

  • In your admin dashboard, go to "Authors".
  • Click the "Add New" button at the top.
  • Fill out the following fields:
    • Author Name
    • Bio (you can add social media links on that page too!)
    • Profile Picture
    • Books by that author. (Note that you don't need to keep coming here to add books, you can connect your books to authors in the book editing page!)
  • Don't forget to hit "Publish" when you're done.

If you're editing the bio, you won't see the all fields mentioned above.  Click on the "Setting Wheel Icon" > "Documents" to find the fields again.

2. How to Edit an Author

  • In the admin dashboard, click on "Authors" > "All Authors".
  • In the list of authors that shows up, select the authors you want to edit.
  • Hover over the author's name and click on "Edit". You can also click on the name itself and it will take you to the editing page.
  • Don't forget to click on the "Document" tab in the sidebar to see all the author options.
  • Make sure to hit "Publish" when you're done with your changes.

3. How to Delete an Author

  • In the admin dashboard, click on "Authors" > "All Authors".
  • If you only want to delete one author, you can hover over it and you will see the "Trash" link appear. Click on it.
  • If you want to delete multiple authors at a time, you can select all the authors you want to delete and under the "Bulk Action" dropdown, select "Move to Trash".
  • If you accidentally delete an author and want to restore it, you will find the "Trash" tab at the top of the page. Click on it and you will see all the authors that have been moved to trash. Select the author you want and click on "Restore".
