I run a website with a number of different people contributing to it. I woud like to have the author appear in each post rather than have Wordpress display the posted by stuff on the top of the post. More or less, I found the way to do this, or rather: I know what to read about and look for in order to make the proper changes.

This is not very practical, since I do not want the contributors to be authors in the WP sense of the word. And I do not want to bother them for emails. What I want is really the ability to create as list of authors along with the biographical info, and have WP to put on the relevant post. It seems like overkill to create a user profile for each one of them.
