Social Author Bio
[resolved] Weird layout on author page (21 posts)

    I love the plugin, however if you click through to the author page (which lists all their posts) the social author bio box shows at the top left of the page for some reason. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the plugin or my theme. Any ideas? Happy to donate if I can get it all up and running properly :)

    When I placed items on the author archive I had to make some assumptions about the theme. It looks like this didn't pan out for your theme.

    Let me know what theme you use and I might be able to figure out a fix for you.

    I'm using "Chameleon" from Elegant Themes. It's a paid one.

    Happy to give you a login for my site to have a look (and swing a donation your way:))

    Still looking, there doesn't seem to be a simple fix. I may have to change how the Google+ link gets displayed rather than relying on the author's archive...

    I am experiencing the same sort of display issue on my site. Presently I am running the "Clean Home" theme.

    This is on the top of my list of things to work on for this plugin. The problem is that each Theme can format the author page however they see fit and that makes it difficult to add components to it because of that.

    You can see on my site: http://nickpowers.info it works great. I'm running TheCorporation theme, also a Elegant Theme (like s13_eisbaer). So, even the same theme writer can vary drastically between individual theme.

    I'm thinking that I may have to come up with my own author profile and forgo using the built in author profile for this. Which is not a small fix ... so please be patient.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Actually, I'm having a similar problem on my site.

    I only see my Avatar with the Join my Google+ circle... phrase on the author page.

    I actually want to get rid of it completely. It's an eyesore!

    How do I do that?

    As stated previously, I'm going to be fixing that.

    Right now I'm in the middle of moving so I cannot devote the time I'd like to it at the moment but after the move I'll spend some time on it.

    Thanks for your patience!

    Wonderful!

    Thank you!

    I love the plugin so far. It's allowed me to put author bios at the bottom of blog posts.

    Just working on author pages now.

    Thanks, again!

    Any update on the update? I'm launching my site next week and would like to test the update while I'm still in beta to make sure no other issues arise.

    This plugin is awesome and my authors love having it loaded at the bottom of their posts. Thanks for all your time and effort.

    I have been working on a new version that incorporates the /bio/ page I described above.

    You can see an example of the new bio page on my dev box here: http://dev.nickpowers.info/bio/admin/

    The format can of course be defined through HTML and Style in the plugin settings page.

    This version will also include a widget and several other new features.

    Would you be interested in beta testing it?

    Hi,

    Like many hosted servers running PHP 5.2.X, allow_url_include is disabled by default.

    Because of this I am getting error:

    Warning: get_headers() [function.get-headers]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in...

    ...will your update have a workaround for this?

    Thanks

    I'll check and see if there is an alternative.

    That code is used to retrieve the Google+ avatar image of the author (used to provide the link to Google+ so the author's image will appear in Google search results).

    Although I wonder if there is an alternative because if your host blocks that then they are likely blocking any outbound communication from your host.

    I'll look into testing if it is available and then disabling showing the Google+ avatar in the /bio/ page when it is not.
