WordPress provides multi-user ability by default, but it doesn’t offer the right experience. We enhanced this ability and its features so the website can be used even as a magazine. There are more personalizing options for its users (authors) so their own blog can look exactly as they want now.
See All Places Which Authors Write About
Google Map element will show all posts with address automatically and can filter them logically in accordance of page content
Login and Register Widget
You can provide your users with simple Login and Register widget which doesn’t have to be used only in sidebars but also in content thanks to Widget Area element. After user is logged in, it becomes his simple administration panel with quick useful links.
(first widget has only presentation functionality)
Author’s Personalized Page
Registered users have ability to customize their personal pages. They can set their custom background of the page, they can write anything about themselves and put anything they want into their profile via WYSIWYG editor.
If author doesn’t have any posts yet, you can set a custom content for him as a welcome page and separated welcome content for public visitors. Here are some example contents.
Author’s Welcome Screen
Welcome, this is your Reporting Area
It seems you haven’t written any reports yet. In the meantime, we recommend you update your details. You can write something about yourself, your organisation and your role within it.
How To Personalize My Profile
Go to your account settings by clicking on Account in the right sidebar. There you can see all available settings for your profile.
We picked some interesting ones:
- Set your full name and change how it will be displayed in public
- Upload an image of yourself or your organisation.
- Set your custom background for your page – this can be quite abstract.
- Write some biographical info or anything relevant to the project
- Give a point of contact for your organisation
All settings are recommended but optional.
How To Write an Online Report
Click on the Add Post button in the right sidebar below your avatar. It will redirect you to admin where you can see a list of all your posts. Next to the title there is a “Add New” button as shown in the picture. If you are familiar with WordPress, you can also use a toolbar or use “www.archnetwork.org/admin” url directly.
After writing your first post, this welcome screen will be replaced by your bio and posts itself. Below you can also find a map with all your posts marked if you have set a location in your blog post.
You can look at the other authors and get inspired too:

Showcase Your Authors
With Authors Element you can easily display all authors of your website including your admins. You can determine which ones will be displayed and you can set their order by name, count of posts, registration date or random. There are many other options for element with which you can enable or disable author’s background, avatar, posts count, bio and social icons. Authors can be displayed in box or list layout.
With Blog Authors Widget you can easily show any author in sidebars with some display options too.
