Social Author Bio
[resolved] Link to previous post doesn't work (6 posts)

    Hi I specifically installed this plugin for my site http://blog.pre-pay-as-you-go.co.uk to be able to easily link to an authors previous posts.

    However when testing to see if this works, instead of directing me to the author page it took me to the sites homepage. Here's an example http://blog.pre-pay-as-you-go.co.uk/author/daniel-wall/

    I'm starting to think my theme doesn't support multiple authors at all, can you help?

    I do not see the example, are you still running the plugin?

    Issue above - Issue 1. I just realized, Your counter is only counting posts, not pages. I am building a course and used pages instead of posts and assigned each page with an author. Is it possible for the counter to count either pages or posts?

    Issue 2. Would there be any reason the "Disable the Social Author Bio on this page/post" would not work. On a PAGE, I check the box and hit update and after the page saves, the box is unchecked and the social author bio box still shows. If I test the same thing on a POST, it works just fine, i can disable the social Author Bio box with no problems.

    So I think my solution is to transfer all my pages over to a post and then wait for an update here.

    Thank you for your hard work on this awesome module, Please dont let this discourage you :-)

    I'm using the default WordPress code to provide the count... I'm sure it's technically possible to create a routine that would count pages but it's not built in.

    I'll look into the issue with the disable button when used with pages and see what I can come up with.

    That may be the quickest approach (convert to posts). Pages have traditionally been used to provide connecting content (website filler) for the content in posts. So, there is a little to overcome when trying to use them for the primary content.

    With that said the next version is going to be configured to work with all built in post types (includes pages), and custom post types. Although I'm not sure when this will be completed and I am still trying to decide if the next version will be a commercial product or not. It will have this and many more new features.
