I am working on a website that uses a custom post type to make posts about articles from a published journal. Each article has a post but the article is written by someone other than the author of the post. Each post has a custom field for the author of the article and we would like to replace the post author field with the custom field for the author so that the article author displays on the visible post. Here is a sample post with post author shown:
I have searched for this topic but couldn’t find anything that was helpful, any suggestions? I can make the custom author field display with an Advanced Custom Field shortcode but I would like to make it automatic.
