Hi,

- By default, WordPress display only one author per post.
- I installed Co-Auhtor Plus which permits to add more than one author for a post, but only in the backend.
- We have to do a bit of programming to display the authors in the frontend.
- I found this bit of information: https://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/allow-multiple-authors-to-be-associated-with-a-post-in-wordpress/
- But I found somewhere else that the code snippet from wpbeginner.com is for most WordPress themes but not for all themes.
- In my case I'm using Lodestar theme and I think that the code snippet from wpbeginner.com does not work as is !

- Also, I'm using a child theme.
- And I'd like that you don't delete any lines, just commenting out no more useful lines.
- And I need a list of all modified files and which lines (line number).

- The multiple authors has to appear both in the main blog page and the post page.

- Here's my main blog page: https://m3tascience.org/les-cahiers/
- The first post is : "Pour un discours général scientifique"
- Just below this title you find this information: "by François Maurice in Communiqué, Discours général, Métascience"
- But this post has two authors, the other one is Isabelle Martineau. The second author was added in the backend with Co-Author plugins.
- So we have to read : "by François Maurice and Isabelle Martineau in Communiqué, Discours général, Métascience"
- If there is more than two authors, we have to read something like this: "by François Maurice, Isabelle Martineau, Jean Fortin and David Morin in Communiqué, Discours général, Métascience"

- Now, if you click to this post you get that particular post at this address: https://m3tascience.org/9/pour-un-discours-general-scientifique/
- Now, below the title we read: "Posted on 7 April 2018 by François Maurice in Communiqué, Discours général, Métascience" (the only difference is "Posted on 7 April 2018" placed before "by")
- The same has to be done here. For two authors, we must read : "Posted on 7 April 2018 by François Maurice and Isabelle Martineau in Communiqué, Discours général, Métascience"
- For more than two authors we must read: "Posted on 7 April 2018 by François Maurice, Isabelle Martineau, Jean Fortin and David Morin in Communiqué, Discours général, Métascience"
