[resolved] [Theme: Hatch] Text problem on homepage (13 posts)

    Hi I am in the closing stages of configuring my site using the theme Hatch.

    If you look at the demo of the theme here http://demo.alienwp.com/hatch/ there is a section of text to the left of the main picture on the home page. Using chrome "inspect element" I have identified this section as <div id="author-bio">

    If you look at my site http://becomeselfemployed.co.uk you will see that this area is blank. I cannot find where or how to fill it with text from anywhere in the wordpress admin area.

    Can anyone advise how I can get some text in this section?

    Thank you.

    I never used the theme before but have you looked in theme options or check widgets. They usually hide stuff in a widget and not tell ya.

    Hi thanks for you reply. I've already checked those settings.

    The appearance > Theme settings has the following options:
    Favicon, logo, author, font family, font size, link color, custom css, footer settings.

    As for the widgets I can't see any placement that would go to the place where the text is in the theme demo. However the text widget would possibly be what was used?

    Here is a screen shot of the widget selection:

    I downloaded the theme and looked at it. In home.php you have

    <div id="author-bio"><?php the_author_meta( 'description', $hatch_author_bio ); ?></div>

    To me it looks like it is getting it from the Bio box under users.

    Go to users and edit the user that made the post (guessing admin)

    Fill in Biographical Info box and see what happens.

    Very BIG THANK YOU!
    You've solved my problem without the 30 bucks club membership they charge for a club membership.
    It actually IS the bio info.
