Multiple authors configuration
In addition to providing data for a single author as shown in the example above, multiple authors can be configured via data/authors/*.(yml, toml, json) entries. If the key provided in .Site.Params.author matched a data/authors/* entry, it will be used as the default. Overrides per page can be done by a simple author = other_author_key entry in the front matter. For those pages where you want to omit the author block completely, a .Params.noauthor entry is also available.
Example author definition file:
name: John Doe bio: The most uninteresting man in the world. location: Normal, IL website: http://example.com thumbnail: images/john.png
Example override author per page file:
+++ author = "" date = "2014-07-11T10:54:24+02:00" title = "" ... +++ Contents here
