Support » Theme: Dazzling » Adjust author vcard to incorporate custom field?

  • Resolved moviepen


    I have posts which use a custom field, author_alias, to attribute a post by an infrequent contributor, but authored (in WordPress terms) by an admin. The byline in the author vcard class displays the author_alias field properly on the post, but the URL for this author defaults to …/author/[admin].

    How can I modify the byline so that the URL for the author defaults to …/author/[author_alias]? That way when a user looks for more articles by this guest contributor by clicking on the byline link, she doesn’t get a massive list of posts by “admin,” regardless of the guest byline.

    Thanks for your help.

    Could you please share the screenshot of what you are referring so that i can better understand it and help you?

    For screenshots, you can simply provide a link to an image through Google Drive, Dropbox,, or other image service. 🙂

    Here you go. Let me know if you have questions. The URL I pointed out is the URL when I mouse over the author’s byline.


    I tried to access your site to see it but it is displsying the error “ took too long to respond.”

    Please advise.

    The site should be fine:

    I could confirm the issue on your site but i have tested it on my test site and it’s working fine for me using latest version of Dazzling theme.

    I think this is happening on your site due to the child theme you are using so could you please share me your child theme so that i can troubleshoot it on my test site?

    I’m happy to package it up for you — we had someone develop the initial theme for us, so I’m not sure where any changes would have been made. Do you have way I can send you a private Dropbox link?

    You can share it privately on my email id
