    Hi, you’re right, rel=nofollow is preventing Google Authorship verification. We’ll mend this in the next plugin update.

    Until then, you can edit the plugin to allow Google Authorship.

    Go to Plugins > Editor > Fancier Author Box (Select) > ts-fab-construct-tabs.php. Find this piece of code:

    $ts_fab_bio .= '<a href="' . esc_attr( $ts_fab_googleplus_url ) . '" title="Google+" rel="nofollow"><img src="' . plugins_url( 'images/googleplus.png', dirname(__FILE__) ) . '" width="24" height="24" alt="' . __( 'My Google+ profile', 'ts-fab' ) . '" /></a>';

    and replace it with this one

    $ts_fab_bio .= '<a href="' . esc_attr( $ts_fab_googleplus_url ) . '" title="Google+"><img src="' . plugins_url( 'images/googleplus.png', dirname(__FILE__) ) . '" width="24" height="24" alt="' . __( 'My Google+ profile', 'ts-fab' ) . '" /></a>';

    Hit Save and that’s it.

    (Basically, you just need to delete the rel=”nofollow” part from the code snippet)

    Draelren,

    Sorry about this, you can update the plugin to latest version, nofollow issue has been fixed.

    Even the paid Fanciest Author Box plugin has been fixed? That’s the one that we are currently using apparently.

    Which I got the authorship to detect, I manually removed the nofollow from the code – and now it is saying “by” correctly, but has no photo.

    Yes, even the premium has been fixed.

    The “no photo” is due to avatar being shown already. There’s no need to have Google+ photo and Fanciest Author Box photo.

    Is there?

    So the one is canceling out the other so neither of them show up on google search results?

    You can test your posts with this tool http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets
    If everything checks out, then no action is necessary.

    Google sometimes shows your Google+ photo and sometimes it doesn’t, it’s their right.
