Hatch
[resolved] Editing the biographical info layoyt (10 posts)

    Hi

    So on the hatch theme the biographical information is displayed on the home page on the left side of the header as you can see in the screen shots. I am wondering how I could potentially change colors, font size, and possible make paragraphs in that text?

    When I try splitting the text up with "returns" they are just ignored on when the text appears on the site.

    Could anyone brief me on how to edit this text?

    Cheers!

    In general, those kinds of things are controlled by the CSS code (style.css file). But it's impossible to give you more specific help wihtout a link to your site.

    my site is:
    http://www.tinghai.no

    and you can see my text on the left hand side of the site. I'd like to customize the text a bit more.

    thanks!

    The CSS ID for that section is "author-bio" so that's what you need to use to add styles. Right now, the CSS (line 683 in style.css) consists of this:

    #author-bio {
        float: left;
        width: 27.6596%;
    }

    Do NOT change any of the above, but you can add other styles that you want -- i.e. you could change the text color by:

    #author-bio {
        float: left;
        width: 27.6596%;
        color: #0000FF;
    }

    This is a good reference for CSS styles:

    Depending on what you want to do, you may also want to use HTML in that section -- say for example, adding <p> tags to create paragraphs -- more spacing between sections of text. Or h tags to create headings.

    So I tried to add the text into the CSS ID under the section of Author-bio, but none of the text appears, it only appears when I put it into the author bio under admin settings.

    So I'm still not able to add headings and paragraphs. Even trying to edit the color by using the same code as you used in your example didn't do anything. sorry about being so hopeless here! Thanks for all help!

    which allows you to format the text with html code

    Hello everyone!

    I just downloaded the plugin "HTML in Author Bio" but have no clue how to use it. Can you just tell me what to do after it's activated to add headings and paragraphs in my biography ?

    Thanks a lot!
    And thank you @alflim because you made me find out how to use a slideshow on hatch as well !!
    Cheers
