HTML linebreaks (<BR> tags) in author/user bio section not working
I can’t get paragraphs or breaks to work on one of my pages also. It keeps putting the next line right next to the previous one. What’s up with that?
i dunno =( it does the same thing for me…. i just put a bunch of spaces using but it shows up different on every computer depending on their resolution so that solution does not really work….
How about a link?
Are you using
yes ive tried
<BR /> <BR /> <BR /> and <p></p>and nothing works =(
here is a link http://ampersandbox.net/?author=2
notice under the author name theres a sentence or two. thats from the bio section when editing a user, i want to put line break within that section…but it wont work.
To display the bio with format you have to process the contents of it first.
Assuming you got the user data by using:
$userdata = get_userdata(intval($author));
The biographical info is in: $userdata->user_description, and to display it the way you want, apply the filter ‘the_content’ to it
$user_description = apply_filters("the_content",$userdata->user_description); echo $user_description;
This should display the bio with line breaks or the format you entered.
Carlos! god bless you for replying =D
this is how I called the user data
<?php the_author_posts_link(); ?> <?php the_author_description(); ?> <a href="<?php the_author_url(); ?>" target="_blank"><?php the_author_url(); ?></a>
unsure how to apply your fix =(
ok i adjusted my code to fuse with yours
<?php $the_author_description = apply_filters("the_content",$authordata->user_description); echo $the_author_description;?>
it displays like before but now using your code, but line breaks still do not occur =(
actually it does format, but only one line break, if i put two it will still only do one.
ok, give this a try:
<?php $the_author_description = apply_filters("the_content",get_the_author_meta('description'); echo $the_author_description;?>
and for the line breaks, it’s odd because in my test it works just like the main editor. Try adding a couple of
