# One Author Disappeared

I want to list the original author first and then the reviser. However, I totally lost the first author by using the following code. Is there a good way to fix this, please? Thank you!

\documentclass[english]{article}

\usepackage{babel}

\begin{document}

\title{Title}
\author{S. S}
\author{Revised by T. H and X. S}
\date{\today}
\maketitle

\end{document}


• How clever do you want to be? The unclever way is: \author{S. S\\[6pt] Revised by T. H. and X. S}. But there are better ways.... – jon Feb 13 '15 at 4:38
• I actually tried this just now. But the second line became italic, which is not what I want. OK, I figured it out by using \textup. But what are the better ways you mentioned. – LaTeXFan Feb 13 '15 at 4:40
• Do you load any packages that affect the output of the \author macro? The second author line does not become italicized in the example code you gave if @jon's suggestion is implemented. – Mico Feb 13 '15 at 5:18
• That might be the case. I used a dozen of packages in fact. – LaTeXFan Feb 13 '15 at 5:33
• \author defines the author list: it's not additive. That's the defined behaviour! – Joseph Wright Feb 13 '15 at 7:10

One solution is to add to the existing \@maketitle command.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\makeatletter
\def\redactor#1{\def\@redactor{#1}}
\def\@maketitle{% <-- NB this is the definition from article.cls; it may well not work (well) with other classes!
\newpage
\null
\vskip 2em%
\begin{center}%
\let \footnote \thanks
{\LARGE \@title \par}%
\vskip 1.5em%
{\large
\lineskip .5em%
\begin{tabular}[t]{c}%
\@author\\ % <-- the \\ is added
\@redactor%  <-- added; you could put the string 'Revised by' here, but it is less flexible
\end{tabular}\par}%
\vskip 1em%
{\large \@date}%
\end{center}%
\par
\vskip 1.5em}
\makeatother

% Note: I'm inclined to include 'metadata' in the preamble, but it is not required in this case....
\title{Title}
\author{S. S}
\redactor{Revised by T. H and X. S}
\date{August 2015}
\begin{document}
