First you need to login as an admin and go to Users/Your Profile. Scroll down to where it says: Enable Detailed Employee Directory Page? and be sure this first option is checked;
[x] Check if you want to include a clickable profile page accessible by clicking on the photo or name in the Employee Directory. Note, each person will have a post generated with their name as the title, and saved in the Employees category.
Leave these 2 options unchecked:
[ ] Check to allow each user to create and edit a custom HTML detail/biography page.
[ ] Check to hide all e-mails from the Employee Directory.
Be sure to click the Update Profile button to save.
Note, users don't have to fill in the About Yourself / Biographical Info section in their profiles. What you must do though is have an employee directory show on the front end using the [employees] shortcode. See the Simple Intranet menu for other parameters you can add to this shortcode.
Go to the page where the shortcode (Directory) displays and refresh it (twice to be sure). If you find still that the profile photos don't link through to a detailed biography page, then login to the Dashboard / Biographies section, and using the "Bulk Actions" pull-down, click the top box to highlight all of them, and select "Move to Trash". Now click on the new Trash link, and then "Empty Trash" button to remove all. Now go back to the employee shortcode page on the front end and refresh the directory page again (be sure to clear your cache). Now your directory will regenerate the Biographies again automatically.
If you still have issues, you may have funny characters in the first or last name of some of your users (first and last names generate the links, so they could be corrupted with international characters etc) that is corrupting things.
