- What is Humans.txt?
An initiative to know the creators of the website.
- What does the Humans.txt format look like?
Currently it’s quite flexible in how you define roles. You can find the current standard here:
- Does this plugin write a humans.txt file on the server?
No. This plugin actually serves the humans.txt content from the WordPress database.
- What if I’ve already uploaded a humans.txt file?
If you’ve uploaded your own humans.txt, that will actually override the content entered here. You can just rename your existing humans.txt file to humans-backup.txt and use the plugin normally.
- Where is the plugin content stored?
The content is saved in the WordPress database in an option called “humanstxt_text”.
- Why isn’t the AUTHOR META tag being added to my website?
Ensure your theme uses the wp_head() function.
