10 Great WordPress Themes For Multi Author Blogs

Posted on by in Blog

The majority of high traffic blogs have numerous authors writing for them. Unfortunately, many WordPress themes don’t accommodate authors in any way. In particular, the designs don’t allow you to give your authors some exposure.

I thought it would be good to show you ten good designs that are suitable for multi author blogs. These designs either link to a dedicated page that displays information about the author or they include author boxes at the bottom of articles to tell visitors more about the author (description, social media profiles, author’s website etc).

1. Teamster

Released last month by WooThemes, Teamster is one of the few WordPress designs that was created for blogs and magazines with multiple authors. Visitors can browse posts by author from the home page and there is a dedicated team page that displays information about each author.
