WP Biographia
[resolved] Add Paragraphs to Author Bio (7 posts)

    Is there a way to add paragraphs to the Author Bio? We've tried HTML markup as well as hitting 'Enter' 2X, but all paragraphs are moved to the next line as opposed to inserting a blank line aka paragraph.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Thx!

    Brian,

    To allow HTML in the bio description, just use this:
    remove_filter( 'pre_user_description' , 'wp_filter_kses' );

    Thanks,

    Travis

    Thank you Travis!

    Can you recommend where exactly this code is to be placed?

    Thx again!

    Just insert it into functions.php.

    Excellent -- works like a charm!

    Also, does this need to be updated if/when we update our WordPress installation to a new version beyond 3.2.1?

    Thx!

    Not unless the changelog says that they did something to that filter.

    Hi ... first of all thanks for trying out the plugin and for getting in touch. I've been wrapped up in my day job for a while so I haven't had the chance to catch up with the forums here.

    I'll add support for this into the next version of the plugin to avoid the need to hack functions.php; I've been working on my day job as well as getting a new version of the plugin into a shape fit for release but I hope to be able to do this over the next week or so.

    Once again, thanks for using the plugin and thanks for getting in touch.

    Best
