In order to do this, you'll need to be able to install plug-ins on your WordPress account. If you are using a free WordPress account this won't be possible. Furthermore, if you are hosting your site or blog on WordPress, you'll need to purchase the top hosting package in order to install the plug-ins for your site. Otherwise, you'll need to host your WordPress account with a different hosting company.

  1. Install the WordPress plug-in called Co-Authors Plus.
  2. Edit the post or page where you want to install a different author or other authors.
  3. You'll need to do this in your dashboard under WP Admin.
  4. Now you can see the authors box on the edit screen. 
  5. In this box, you can now add another author or change the author.
  6. Type in the name and you'll find the different names of the authors as you type.
  7. Select the one you want to add.

You can find numerous free and premium plugins that will make your wordpress site multi author site. However, you can also convert your single user site into multi author site without using any plugins. Here is the step by step process.

Log into your wordpress dashboard. On the admin ribbon on the top hover over New (the option that lets you create new posts). Choose "user" option. Fill the form. You have to be careful about choosing the options for user role. If you choose administration, the new user will have access to your admin panel. You might not want to do this because your website can be hijacked. If you want the user just to post articles, choose author option. Hit save user. After that send login details to the user.

You can also access "add new user" option directly by choosing user option on the left hand side on your wordpress site.
