Support » Plugin: Molongui Author Box, Guest Author & Co-Author » plugin disables default wordpress features

    So far I love the plugin just two huge problems for me that makes it a no go.

    1. The Author Bio, default in WordPress and with Theme, is disabled when you enable the plugin. If you enable a bio in the plugin it has its own fields so not using the WordPress fields
    2. When enabled, if you view the list of authors you cannot click on the number of posts in the list view to view the posts that author posted via the back-end.

    Hi @tripledm,

    1) The plugin takes the default WP bio field and relocates it on the edit-user screen. Yes. But data is taken from/saved to the default WP database field. So no matter whether the plugin is active or not, you should have your author bio there. If you have the plugin disabled and you add some bio for an author, it will be loaded in the “custom” bio field when having the plugin enabled. And any edit you make using that “custom” bio field, will be kept even when disabling the plugin.

    2) Yes. That’s something we have in our roadmap and will be added in a future version of the plugin.

    Hey all!
    supporting @tripledm No.1 issue!

    Can this be removed from the user profile?

    Also!
    Molongui Authorship, headline shown in the top of the box? is there a way to white label it?

    Hello, on number 1, thank you for clearing that up and on number 2, that would be awesome!

    Hi @tripledm,

    So you have that other “Full Bio” field and you can edit it normally, right?

    Hi @m7mad,

    Regarding No.1 issue reported by @tripledm, the “Biographical Info” field is relocated within the “Molongui Authorship” section and relabeled as “Full Bio”. Here you have a screenshot of how that field looks like with the plugin enabled.

    Now, about removing the “Author Box Settings” from the edit-user screen, you have two options: 1) If you don’t use the Author Box feature, you can disable it altogether. That should remove that section from that page. Or 2) add this custom CSS rule to the admin area of your site:

    #molongui-user-fields #molongui-box-settings {display:none;}

    Check out this article or this other one to know how to add that custom CSS rule to your admin area.

    And about customizing the text of the headline displayed above the author box, yes, you can change it to your likings. Just go to Appearance > Customize > Molongui Author Box > Headline and replace the content in the “Text” field with the one of your choice. Here you have a screenshot of how that settings panel looks like.

    yes but

    With Molongui off = standard wordpress bio displays
    With Molongui on = no standard wordpress bio but must enable in Molongui “enhance user profile adding extra…” then the Full Bio displays on the user profile.

    Hi @tripledm,

    Oh! I see what you mean. Ok, we will release an update with a fix so the default WP bio field is displayed also when the plugin is active and the “Enhance user profile…” setting is disabled.

    Is that what you meant?

    (@tripledm)

    Almost lol.

    So it should be that:

    Molongui Plugin Enabled and “Enhance user profile…” is disabled = default wordpress bio field displays.

    OK! Understood! It will be added to the next release (4.3.3) of the plugin.

    Thanks for letting us know about this!

    I’m closing the ticket now. If version 4.3.3 doesn’t fix this, please feel free to re-open it so we can look into it.

    Cheers!

    Hi @tripledm and @m7mad,

    The update with the fix was released yesterday (4.3.3). It should fix the “bio” issue.

    Thanks!

    Hi @tripledm,

    Just let you know that we have already addressed the issue #2 you reported. Since update 4.3.7 (which will be released later this week) you will be able to click on the number of posts in the users list and get a filtered view of posts by that author. Just like WordPress works by default.

    Thanks again for reporting!
