Bylines was launched by Daniel Bachhuber, who is famous in the WordPress community for his work on WP-CLI and the Co-Authors Plus plugin, which was the inspiration for Bylines. Daniel decided to find a new home for Bylines because it wasn’t his primary focus and he wanted to make sure it receives the attention it deserves.
