Roughly four months ago, I released a premium plugin that aimed to improve author administration in WordPress. Today, I’m officially ending development on Author Admin..
Similar to WP Social Icons, I’m more concerned with narrowly focusing my efforts on projects that are more closely aligned with the problems I’d like to attempt to solve.
That said, there are a few things that I did learn while working on and maintaining the project.
One of the advantages that comes with building various products for WordPress is getting to meet a lot of different people working on interesting things. Some are developers, some are bloggers, some are contributors, some are editors – there’s a wide variety of people using the platform in many different ways.
If you’re acting as an editor, you have a number of responsibilities: you have to curate content, create, edit, and schedule posts, work with a team of authors, and, in some cases, make sure that your server and associated environment is up-to-date.
If you’re an editor, WordPress leaves a bit to be desired when working with a team of authors. Author Admin is a premium plugin that attempts to mitigate that problem by adding improved author administration for WordPress.
