Guest author bio information is not showing up in my “about author” boxes. See this article for example. The about author info appears to be for whoever the previous ‘real’ user/author was.
This is the code my theme uses to call the author box info:
<section id="author-info"> <header> <h3> <?php printf( __( 'About the Author: <a href="%s" rel="author">%s</a>', 'btp_theme' ), esc_url( get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) ), get_the_author() ); ?> </h3> </header> <div> <p id="author-avatar"><?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta('email'), 80 ); ?></p> <p id="author-description"><?php the_author_meta('description'); ?></p> </div> </section>
This works fine for regular authors (it doesn’t display multiple author bios, but that’s a separate issue I haven’t tackled yet), but not for guest authors.
I’ve tried replacing “the_author_meta” with a few CoAuthor variables, but nothing seems to work. I’ve poked around the plugin code a bit but haven’t been able to make much headway.
Any suggestions? I’m hoping I just missed a variable somewhere…
