    Hi I am trying to use CoAuthors with woothemes canvas.

    I have used co authors before but editing the template tags is proving difficult with canvas as it has a unique tagging system. Can i get a hand please?

    Cheers

    Admittedly, probably better much ways to handle but think this will get you started. Opening the theme files (there are alot) author post meta is defined by /includes/theme-actions.php and /includes/theme-functions.php - this would be a quick and dirty to replace author info and avatars making use of the canvas > filters form and modifying the defined author archive condition by replacing woo pluggable function for archive title. Also adds post type support for portfolio - authors (so coauthors can be assigned). Note: coauthors must be active - does not deprecate.

    Dump all of this in your canvas theme functions.php file (under where it says - You can add custom functions below):

    // Custom shortcode function for coauthors post links
    
    function coauthor_links_shortcode( ) {
    
        if ( function_exists( 'coauthors_posts_links' ) ) {
            $author = coauthors_posts_links( null, null, null, null, false );
        } else {
           $author = '[post_author_posts_link]';
        }
        return  $author;
    }
    
    add_shortcode('author_links','coauthor_links_shortcode');
    
    // Define woo_post_meta if not set in filter yet
    
    function woo_post_meta() {
    
    	if ( is_page() && !( is_page_template( 'template-blog.php' ) || is_page_template( 'template-magazine.php' ) ) ) {
    		return;
    	}
    
    	$post_info = '<span class="small">' . __( 'By', 'woothemes' ) . '</span> [author_links] <span class="small">' . _x( 'on', 'post datetime', 'woothemes' ) . '</span> [post_date] <span class="small">' . __( 'in', 'woothemes' ) . '</span> [post_categories before=""] ';
    printf( '<div class="post-meta">%s</div>' . "\n", apply_filters( 'woo_filter_post_meta', $post_info ) );
    
    } // End woo_post_meta()
    
    // Replace Single Post Author (in theme-actions.php) 
    
    function woo_author_box () {
    	global $post;
    	$author_id=$post->post_author;
    
    	// Adjust the arrow, if is_rtl().
    	$arrow = '→';
    	if ( is_rtl() ) $arrow = '←';
    
    ?>
    <?php foreach( get_coauthors() as $coauthor ): ?>
    <aside id="post-author">
    	<div class="profile-image"> <?php echo coauthors_get_avatar( $coauthor, '80', '', false ); ?></div>
    	<div class="profile-content">

    		</div><!--#profile-link-->
    		<?php } ?>

    	<div class="fix"></div>
    </aside>
    <?php endforeach;
    } // End woo_author_box()
    
    // Replace Archive Titles conditions

    		/* Get the post type object. */
    		$post_type_object = get_post_type_object( get_query_var( 'post_type' ) );
    
    		$title = $post_type_object->labels->name . ' ' . __( 'Archive', 'woothemes' );
    	}
    
    	// Post Format Archive
    	if ( get_query_var( 'taxonomy' ) == 'post_format' ) {

    	}

    // Add Custom Post Type Support args
    
    add_action('init', 'custom_post_type_support');
    function custom_post_type_support() {
    	add_post_type_support( 'portfolio', array('publicize','author') );
    	/* add_post_type_support( 'product', array('publicize','author') ); -- if adding coauthor box to woocommerce */
    
    }

    Then go into Canvas > Filters and change for both Post Meta and Portfolios:

    [post_author_posts_link]

    to

    [author_links]

    Hi eburnettw79,

    You're a life saver and are super awesome!

    There's a new problem though: When it takes you to the archive of a single author (e.g. bertrand-johnson), the header of the archive lists all the authors.

    For example: http://www.everythingisscrewed.com/author/bertrand-johnson/

    Any idea how to fix this?

    I guess I could use CSS to hide the entire header, but I'd like a more elegant solution.
