  • Hi,
    I just updated to WP 3.6 and installed the new theme Twenty Thirteen. It looks awesome but there is one adjustment that I would like to do.

    I want the Author bio box to be displayed under each post that is published. Can anyone guide me how should I go ahead and implement it?

  • See this line #L51 here. The 3 conditions there must be true.
    http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/browser/twentythirteen/1.0/content.php#L51

    <?php if ( is_single() && get_the_author_meta( 'description' ) && is_multi_author() ) : ?>
    	<?php get_template_part( 'author-bio' ); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    So in case of single author site, you just need to create a dummy author and publish a dummy post to make is_multi_author() return true. And for the real author, make sure to fill in the author description.

    Thanks a lot for real quick response on this.
    Yes I have a single author blog (and will always be) so as for the quick fix, I removed the third condition is_multi_author().

    Hope that shouldn’t be a big problem and would not break anything else.

    So, finally I understand why this shows. This should not be on as default, since it conflicts with any plugins in use that produces the same thing. There is no way to turn it off without hacking the template then I guess.
