How To: Create and Update an Author Profile

Summary

Author profiles are a great way for authors to connect with their audience. Each article displays an author byline, which promotes an author's social presence and links to their Tempest Author Hub. Author Hub's automatically aggregate all articles published by that author to help readers find the content they are looking for.

Instructions for Authors

Step 1: Login to Tempest and Navigate to the "My Profile"

New Authors can create an author profile once an Editor has approved access to the Tempest CMS. When first logging in you should be directed to the Profile page. If not, go to the Admin panel by clicking the Tempest logo in the upper right and click My Profile, under your name.

Your author profile will automatically be linked to your user account which means that any time you create a new article, your author profile will be the assigned "author" by default.
