Support » Theme: Blue Planet » Author Bio Box not available?

    I have 2 publisher authors for blog posts, but the theme is not triggering (displaing) the Author bio box below any blog post.

    Even click the meta tag of Author name doesn’t display any informations, just the post published by the author

    Any solution ?

  • I don’ think this theme has that build in?? The easiest way to do this is to add a plugin for that…

    Well all default WP themes has it bulti i. The bio box just trigger when you have more than 1 post author.

    Thats why my question. Yeah there are plugin solution, but plugin are leeching resources… if i can avoid 1 more plugin would be better.

    it’s true that in the dashboard at users there’s always an author bio box.
    But the theme creator has to call it in the php files. It doesn’t look like this theme has that set up so either you’ve got to change the php file or you have to use a plugin…

    I’ve been looking at php scripts and made some tests on function.php on my theme child, but for now none of those I know worked.

    Currently there is no feature of author box in the theme. I have shared a snippet to display author box. You can try it.
    First you need to paste following code in content-single.php.
    <?php do_action( 'blue_planet_author_box' ); ?>
    I would recommend making child theme rather than directly modifying the theme.
    After that, copy following snippet in functions.php of your child theme.

    Trying it on child theme, but when I update functions.php adding the full snippet content the site crash

    Gonna test some more, i’ll update eventaully

    Ok now it is Working.

    Had to remove the PHP open / close tags from the snippet. Thx Nilambar 🙂

    Update: Social links Author profile as: G+, FB, Twitter,are not displayed, only the website link.

    Default WP does not have FB and G+ links. If you are using any plugin to keep those links then you need to modify the snippet accordingly.
    FYI: I have updated the theme with author box hook. New version will be released in few days. Please modify your theme accordingly after the update.
