#27 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Provide an option for adding multiple theme authors

Reported by: mario-siteground Owned by: Otto42
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Theme Directory Keywords:


On WordPress.org plugins could be led and managed by several contributors, but it's not applicable for themes. Only the theme author is entitled to work on a theme - and changing the author itself requires a communication with a member with privileges on WordPress.org (cannot be done by just updating style.css or readme.txt).

Is this task on any sort of roadmap? Any idea when it might be implemented?

  • Owner changed from iandunn to obenland

I never got around to working on it, and now the new theme directory has launched, so @obenland is probably the best person to own it.

  • Owner changed from obenland to otto42

I'm going to pass that baton on to @otto42, as he recently mentioned he already has some code in place for that.

#9 @Otto42

  • Owner changed from otto42 to Otto42

Well, not code in place yet, but similar code lying around somewhere. I'll look into it.

@Otto42: Any work here?

I have code to allow for theme uploads by multiple authors, and will create a metabox to allow admins to edit it. I will add this to the directory this week.

#13 @Otto42

For assorted reasons, we can't send multiple author data through the API just yet. I need to test with old installs to find the right way forward. This means that only single author data will be displayed on theme pages until this is figured out. The patch just allows for specifying other-accounts that are allowed to upload updates to the theme.

This is dependent on other work, and is most likely to happen as part of a larger project to normalise the theme and plugin directory code. Closing this ticket for now, but not because we're rejecting the idea.

I would also need this in our templates. So it should be added.
