Now Multiple Authors Can Create Articles:

You can now create or collaborate with multiple authors,Especially when you are working with teams. Each author will have a unique page of her written articles also her profile widget in Articles written by his/her.

For this every Author needs to have a unique username (without space) For eg. If Author is John Doe - the username should be johndoe or john-doe (without space).This key will be used by devlopr, to fetch individual author’s profile pages internally.

Configuring Authors :

Under _authors folder create a author details file (username.md) with his/her username (as described above). For eg. johndoe.md.

Then add this frontmatter to describe the author in johndoe.md.

   site: http://johndoe.com
   avatar: johndoe.png
   bio: "Hi I a John, a Web Developer and Designer."
   email: mail@johndoe.com
   social:
      - title: "github"
        url: "https://github.com/johndoe"
      - title: "linkedin"
        url: "https://www.linkedin.com/in/johndoe"
      - title: "youtube"
        url: "https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSfLBFFfNU9r6ihfei6VeJw"
      - title: "facebook"
