HubSpot Updates
In Planning

Hi Community members, 

 

Thank you all for your patience. Earlier this year I notified you that we would have this feature on the roadmap for this year. This is not the update I wanted to share but unfortunately, we have decided to deprioritize at this time due to a larger effort. Our current focus is building out the drag-and-drop functionality in the blog post editor. I do not have a new date for this feature but a few workarounds that have worked for some users are:

 

  1. Add the author names in the rich text area to state the additional contributors and hyperlink their names.
  2. Create an author labeled “Multiple Contributors” and include their names in the description

I know it is not ideal, but we continue to have this on our radar and will update you as soon as this is ready for BETA. You are more than welcome to reach out to me with any questions.

 

Thanks,

 

Yaisah

Hi Community members,

 

Thanks again for submitting this feedback. I understand you have been waiting for this feature for a while now. Our team is now working on adding this feature to our priorities and hopefully deliver this by the end of this year.  I'm labeling this idea as "In Planning" to reflect that. 

 

Thank you for your patience, and if you have any additional feedback or want to discuss further feel free to send me a message and I'll be glad to schedule a quick chat.

Not Currently Planned

Hi Community members,

 

Thank you for submitting this feedback. I agree, this would be a good feature for the Blog. At this time, we are focused on other projects to improve the blog and the larger content management experience in HubSpot, so I'm labeling this idea as "not currently planned" to reflect that. This does not mean we won't ever build this feature -- in fact, I think we eventually will -- but I do want you to know it's not planned for the foreseeable future. 

 

We're always re-evaluating our priorities to deliver the most value to our customers, and I know this feature will be considered for future updates. We'll update this idea if and when plans change to include multiple Blog authors. 

 

Thank you for your patience, and please keep the feedback coming!

Yes we DESPERATELY need multiple authors for blogs! We use blogs to post technical papers - and all of them have a minimum of 2 authors.  Our backend organization of the authors is such a mess, and we can't filter by or search for authors accurately without this feature.

I'd like to suggest adding the ability to have more than one authors for a blog post. We have a several co-authored blog posts coming up and there is currently not a way to add more than one author.

Thank you!

I agree! this would be a great feature! We are currently moving our website from Wordpress to HubSpot CMS and we were disappointed to see that we were not able to have multiple blog authors.  Picking and choosing which author to feature when more than one person contributed can get complicated.

Yes please. Most often are blogs and articles are more than one author. We need this.

Astounded a platform that costs this much still has very sub-par blogging experience, including the lack of multiple author support.

We also need this feature. There are often collaborations between several authors and in the worst case it can lead to articles not being published because not all authors can be listed.

Adding another vocal note - we also would love this feature as an organization! The workaround we're using is creating author profiles with the names of all of the contributors, but it's still fairly messy – combining bios, and line breaks aren't allowed, so it's all an endless paragraph + the articles won't be automatically added to the individual authors' pages. Thanks for considering!

Yes please add this feature! I would like to be able to add blogs with 2 authors whose pictures and bios appear side by side in the byline.

Yes please, this is only fair that we credit multiple authors when they work on a project together! #CreditIsImportant #CreditMatters #PleaseImplement

Collaborating authors can make a solid article/blog and all should get credit. Thanks so much for your consideration.
