Author’s Administration

Updated: October 2, 2015

After successful registration, user becomes author. After login, he is redirected automatically to his profile. This profile is visible for anyone, just the content displayed varies.

  • New registered author without posts sees welcome screen (can be fully customized in Authors – Theme Options)
  • All other authors see on his profile notice that this author does not have any posts yet (can be fully customized in Authors – Theme Options)
  • After writing the first post, those screens are replaced with posts itself and everyone sees nothing else but them
