Support » Plugin: Byline » Author byline not linking to bio page

  • First, I want to say that this plugin is a lifesaver. Co-authors was causing me all sorts of issues, and this plugin made things so much easier to work with. So thank you!

    I had a question about the hyperlinked byline and where it should link to. On my page, when you click an author’s byline, it should lead you to a page like this (with all of the author’s article and a short bio about them): Usually the hyperlink is”authorname”

    However, in some cases, it links to a page like this:

    This page doesn’t have the author’s picture, nor a short bio. And the hyperlink is:”authorname.” How might I be able to get the bylines that link to /byline to actually link to /author?

    Thank you!!

    Apologies for the long delay in responding.

    Unfortunately this plugin is a kind of all-or-nothing proposition. If you use Bylines, it will replace the author field when posts are displayed to the reader, and will link each name to the Byline archive page for that name.

    It is possible to write descriptions for each Byline and then modify a theme template page that displays them, similar to a tag template page or category template page. There are custom taxonomy plugins that can add photos, etc. to be associated with a tag/byline.

    Hope that helps!
