If there are a few authors that post regularly, then I must have author profiles for them where it would be easy for me to just enter the author's details and I could easily just add everything with a single click to each post. However, If i want individual author boxes and hyperlinks for each post of the author, then I must be able to do that.
And If they are one time authors, then I should be able to do that without needing to create profiles for each of them.
What I need for each post:
I want authors name at the top - byline (hyperlink) - must be able to link to anything.
I want an author box at the bottom with 1-2 hyperlinks. Must be a well designed box that matches the theme and I must be able to format or edit the contents using a WYSIWYG editor.
There must also be a photo/thumbnail for the author's image in the box.
Just to get an idea of what I am talking about - examples:
