Hi there ...
i saw a similar post about this issue but there was no solution. i'm using the plugin 'Simple Local Avatars' as recommended and the avatar shows up just fine on the biography at the end of each post but not on the author page itself, see http://suited.myomnipod.com/author/leighann/. just in case i also posted this issue on the SLA plugin forum as i don't know which plugin causes this error.
So I've taken a look at the source of the author page you've linked to, but the biography at the head of that page isn't one that's produced by WP Biographia. Also, the
img tag that looks like it should produce the author's avatar pic, isn't being produced by the WordPress API
get_avatar call which is used by both WP Biographia and by Simple Local Avatars; the signature for the
img tag produced by that API call is very distinctive ...
img tag produced for this post, is one that's emitted by WP Biographia calling
get_avatar via the Simple Local Avatars plugin, looks like this ...
<img alt="Leighann Calentine" src="http://suited.myomnipod.com/wp-content/uploads//2012/10/Leighann-Calentine_avatar-100x100.jpg" class="avatar avatar-100 photo" height="100" width="100">
... the giveaway is the
avatar-100 classes; compare this with the
img tag on your author page, which looks like this ...
<img src="" alt="Author Leighann Calentine" align="right" class="alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-215" border="0">
... and you can immediately see the difference as well as the glaring lack of a URL for the
src argument on the tag. This isn't HTML that's come either from WP Biographia or from Simple Local Avatars.
I can 100% see that there's an issue here but I'd look at the code in the
author.php file for your theme, which looks like it's a custom child theme built on top of the stock Twenty Eleven theme judging by the URL to your theme's CSS which contains
i also noticed that i can't separate the link behavior of the links below the biography. i would like the link to more posts to open in the same window as you remain within the blog, while any other links to web and social media should open in a new window.
Ah, you can please some people some of the time but not all people all of the time! The ability to specify how contact links open was added in v3.0 of the plugin back in April of this year after people asked for this feature to be added. But as you correctly point out, this applies to all contact links supported by the plugin; you can't specify individual link options. Your use case is pretty specific to your needs and I'm wary about adding this in as a feature as it has the prospect of making the configuration options for the plugin overly complex and potentially confusing.
Having said that, you should be able to achieve what you want by using the
wp_biographia_links filter and use a custom filter hook function to modify the contents of the
links array that's passed to look at each link's URL and modify it to open in a new window if it's not a URL which is local to your site. See here or here for documentation on the plugin's supported filters.
