    Hi everyone! 

    I have a feature we're trying to build into the BLOG feature of Sitefinity.   At a high level, here is what we're trying to accomplish: 

    On the admin side:

    For each blog entry, we'd like to be able to assign an author -- from a list of multiple authors.  

    On the public side:

    When reading the article, I'd like the author's name to be clickable.  That would go to a page that lists all the articles from that author. 

    We do have plenty of ways to generate ​the page that lists articles by the author, but the ability to assign the author and generating a clickable link to that page ​has been the nut we are unable to crack.

    I'd appreciate any insight, suggestions or examples if anyone has accomplished something similar. 

    Thanks!

    Hello Stephen,

    You can try to create a custom filed for the Author in the Blogs Posts (screenshot).

    More information could be found here:
    Custom fields
    Build a custom field control manually (or using Sitefinity Thunder)

    In addition, the Authors could be created as Dynamic Items and the filed to be a selector of that items.

    I hope this helps.
