[Plugin: Post Author Box] Line-breaks in Author's Description

    Thankfully, there’s a better way for doing that than editing the core of the plugin (which you should never do because then it’s more of a pain to upgrade). At line 357 in v1.1, there’s a filter you can use to change the values of the description token. To achieve the same effect, you might do something like this:

    /**
     * db_filter_values()
     * Replace the default values with ones better suited
     */
    function db_filter_values( $replace ) {
    $replace['%description%'] = nl2br( $user->description );
    return $replace;
    }
    add_filter( 'pab_replace_values', 'db_filter_values' );

    Hope that helps,

    Daniel

    Where the heck were you before I did a million Google searches and spent 3 hours trying to learn enough PHP to accomplish what I did! =o)

    So this may be a silly question: How do I implement this change?

    Copy and paste into your theme’s functions.php file and you should be set!

    You rock!

    So this is where I’ve used your code if you’d like to see:

    Still playing with it trying to iron out all the bugs.
