I'm currently upgrading my WP into a multi author blog, my idea is to pay them per approved post (not ad revenue sharing). Currently, the plugin of choice is Post Pay Counter, it works well but the design is ugly and doesn't look professional although it gets the job done to some extent. Anyone who has any experience with owning a multi author blog? I'm open to any advice. I've been reading about this for two days now. I found a couple of plugins to make my life easier but if someone knows a plugin that they use that can further help me and my authors to manage our work, that will be great. Free or paid plugins are ok. I prefer the paid ones since it has support. I really think that Multi Author Sites are the way to achieve a "set and forget" type of website that's future-proof.
