Support » Plugin: AuthorSure » Buddypress

  • I like the plugin but I am not seeing:

    1. How a Buddypress member can update author details?

    2. I am also not seeing where if there is a way to set the social icons so they open a link to a new tab.

    3. How to get your own website to show in the icon list.

    4. Because I have a plugin that auto places image alt tags for example the article title name on the image better for SEO. What is happening with your social icons is its placing that title information x number of social icons I have. It be nice if you coded the social icons for no image attribute or had an option to turn off.

    1) The BuddyPress question is one for the BuddyPress forum.

    2) The next release of AuthorSure v2.3 will have an option to have make the clicking of the social icons open a new tab/window (Many Thanks for the suggestion)

    3) The icons are only for recognized social media channels – it does not really make sense to have an icon to a personal website in the list. However, if you really want to add your website’s one then use the WordPress hook, user_contactmethods.

    4) It is the job of the SEO plugin to be able to exclude icon images that should not be included in title replacement – it should be able to recognize the featured image in the post and operate on that one image. And in any case, the ALT tag should be a image description for the visually impaired. This SEO technique may have worked 5 years ago but now you are more likely to be penalized by Google as if the post title is applied to EVERY image, Google will regard this as keyword stuffing.
