Support » Fixing WordPress » Links do not work in autho bio or profile

  • I want to place a link to my linkedin in my user bio so it will show up under the blog posts that i author. however, when i code the link in it just shows the code in the bio and no hyperlink. Also when i place the link in the linkedin profile url section it does not appear either.

    What am i doing wrong? is this a plugin issue?

    If you are using a plugin for this, ask in that plugin’s dedicated support forum. Otherwise, you’ll have to ask at linkedin.

    what plugin are you using, if any, for your author bio?
    what theme are you working with?
    is the ‘linkedin profile url section’ part of your theme or by a plugin?

    generally, to allow html in the user bio (the build in one under ‘Users’,’Edit User’), add this to functions.php (of your child theme):

    remove_filter('pre_user_description', 'wp_filter_kses');

    im not using a plugin for the bio and the theme is SaaSpot.
