We acquired Bylines to make PublishPress better

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series Building PublishPress

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that we’re spending a lot more time focused on WordPress in 2018.

Our primary plugin focus is PublishPress, a suite of tools enabling WordPress teams to create great content.

To make PublishPress more competitive, we acquired Bylines, from Daniel Bachhuber. By default WordPress only allows one author per post. Bylines allows you to assign multiple authors to a post and publish articles from guest authors.

Daniel has worked on many great projects WordPress world and his main focus had moved on from Bylines. He’s now helping prepare Gutenberg for the WordPress core.

Acquisitions have worked really well for us at Joomlashack and hopefully they will in the WordPress world too. The WordPress ecosystem is competitive enough that we wanted to make some aggressive moves.
