Owners/editors should be able to create bylines manually


#1

I run a publication with a small staff but we occasionally accept pitches from freelancers who technically have no need to ever be in the back-end of our website because their posts are formatted, published, and edited by staff. It would be helpful if it were possible to manually create an author byline for situations such as this. In the back-end of Ghost, posts would still appear as being created by the actual staff user, perhaps for example “Staff User as Alias Author Name.” I’ve had to create a lot of user accounts within my Ghost instance to accommodate one-off bylines because I can’t create author aliases.
