Hi,

 

I wanted to add a metadata to the blog author (since I wanted to add a section to each blog to display the Author's bio) but I can't see the Author in the Custom Data? Where should I add it?

@j_adv21 hey, thanks for posting here.
i think best way to show a a section .

creat custom sections then put unter the autor condition: 
{% if article.author %}
<--! section -->
{% endif %}


OR create metadata then attach the bolgs metafields then use on custom section.

In a theme, article.author is a string, not an object, so you can't add metafields to it.

I'd probably consider creating metaobjects for each author and then you can add a metafield to article to reference these metaobjects and use metaobject fields as dynamic sources.
