    Hello,

    I’d like to add a “fact checked by…” line with an additional author’s name directly below my information in my blog post meta hook.

    How can I accomplish this?

    This is a page referencing what I’d like to accomplish: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/a/absoluteadvantage.asp

    And this is one of my blog posts: https://thegoldenlamb.com/resources/terms/r/ristretto/

    Thank you,

    Kelsey

    Hi there,

    will this second author actually publish any posts and will the post require dual authors ?

    Or will displaying a name from a Custom Field work ?

    The latter is easy, the former not so.

    The latter will work just fine. The author won’t be publishing anything.

    You will need to create a Custom Field on your site.
    You can use the WP core ones: https://wordpress.org/support/article/custom-fields/
    Or a plugin like ACF to add them.

    You can then edit the Block Element you’re using to display your Post Meta, and include another Headline block to show your Custom Field by choosing the Post Meta option in the blocks dynamic data.

    Thank you! You lost me on that last part, but I’ll try to figure it out.
