Implemented Multiple Authors

    It would be great to be able to separate usernames with a "," in the Author field, so that more than one user could be assigned as owners of an article. The Phrase system could be dynamically updated to read "About the Authors" (plural vs singular). Notifying the Author(s) would obviously inform both users. Maybe it creates other tricky issues; perhaps "allow multiple authors" control via adminCP settings.

    I completely understand that it would be NICE to have multiple authors, but XenForo itself (which AMS is tightly integrated with) is a single user system, so a content type can't have multiple user_ids associated with it.

    What you could do that is create a custom field that you could add contributing authors to (just an idea).

    Cool, that is a quality alternative. (y)

    @tonmo Maybe with a custom add-on of AMS you may develop it.

    Since we can't have multiple authors assigned to an item, is there a permissions way of letting people contribute to SC pages that they don't own?

    You mean WIKI style where ANYONE with permission can edit? If so, I THINK that there is an existing suggestion for this (altho, it might be for Showcase and it might be posted at my private development site).

    If you can't find it here, start a NEW suggestion thread and explain how you'd personally like it to work.

    Yes, wiki-style.

    There is this one suggestion for the XF1 version:
    Implemented - Usergroup permission: can edit items by others

    If I am not mistaken, for the XF2 there is a moderator permission called "edit any item", which would be basically the same as described above in that thread. But the XF1 version allowed to have it on a category basis, whereas for the XF2 version there are no category based permissions. Only global for all. So if I gave an user "edit any item", it could basically have access to all items and delete any content theoretically.

    I will open a new suggestion then. Thanks.
