Support » Theme: Founder » Link to Authorsite

  • Hey,

    under the headline, there is the author-name. But unfortunately you cannot link to the author-site there. Is there any way to fix this?

    Thanks for using Founder!

    This is not currently an option but could be added with a child theme. Are you looking to link the author’s name to their post archives or the website saved in their profile?

    A link to the post archieves would be great 🙂

    Okay great. Here’s a link to download a Founder child theme that will link the author name’s to their posts: https://share.getcloudapp.com/2NuqdP9d

    You can upload and activate the child theme like a regular theme through the Appearance menu. Since child themes save their settings separately, you’ll just need to reselect your logo and other changes you’ve made in the Customizer. If you have a lot of settings to reselect, it can be faster to use this plugin to copy everything over to the child theme: https://wordpress.org/plugins/customizer-export-import/

    If i now click on the author-page https://www.xyz.de/author/abc…

    there is a little person-icon before my name – better would be my profile-picture. Is there a easy way to change that?

    Sure, that’s doable too. Here is a download link for an updated child theme with this change: https://share.getcloudapp.com/12u4q8jJ

    You can upload that zip file and choose to overwrite your existing child theme. If the avatar shows up as a square, clear your site’s cache so the new style.css file can load, and then it will be styled properly.

    Thank you. I am using the plugin “Child Theme Configurator” – do you know how i can upload the child theme from you there?

    Hmm I’m not familiar with that plugin, but you should be able to upload the child theme’s zip file normally through the Appearance Menu after clicking the “Add New” button up top.

    If that plugin makes it easier for you to add individual files, you could add a “content” folder and then include the archive-header.php file from the child theme. The only other change is a few new lines of styling in the style.css file.

    Alright, thx. The h1 font-size is smaller than the bio-text. Can i change that?

    Sure, here is an example snippet that fixes the layout and updates the font sizes:

    .archive-header {
    	flex-wrap: wrap;
    }
    .archive-header p {
    	width: 100%;
    	font-size: 16px;
    }
    .archive-header h1 {
    	font-size: 21px;
    }

    The bio text is already 16px, but I added that in there so you can easily update to make that text larger/smaller too.
