Hopefully this is a quick question! I'm working on a custom content type for users to create something similar to blog posts. We'll have different authors who will be credited, so I need a drop down list so when a user writes the post, they can select the author.

The trouble is, I need to list to be auto populated from the data that is stored in a different field. We have a content type called (you guessed it) authors. It allows us to fill out name, field of expertise, etc.

So, how can I add an AUTHOR NAME list to my BLOG custom content type?

Thanks! -JB

You can use the Entity Reference module to create your 'author name' field, which will reference your authors content type.
