    Thanks for letting me know dmahler and mccomb. I’ve just rolled out version 1.4 of the plugin that includes a few updates that should solve this issue for you and others.

    Hi,

    I’ve just had exactly the same problem. I’ve just installed the most recent plugin version. Activated and updated my authors templates to include:

    <p><?php echo get_the_author_meta(‘description’); ?></p>

    and nothing is displayed. Switch off the plugin and the content appears in the website authors content page. Switch the plugin on and it disappears.

    If you can point me in the right direction I’d appreciate it!

    Thanks,
    Nick.

    Hi Agent8,

    I’ve just checked the plugin source, and have done a trial run and it appears to be working OK:

    If you’re comfortable, it may be easiest if I log in an take a look at your specific setup. Because the plugin is relatively new, it may be an issue with your web server environment. Shoot me an email with the URL, an administrator username, and password at info@kevinleary.net and I can take a look for you.

    Thanks for sending over your login info Agent8,

    I’ve taken a look and can see that it’s actually an issue with the implementation in your custom theme rather than an error with the plugin itself.

    Looking at your author.php template, the author description is not picking up the added content formatting because you are pulling it directly from the get_userdata() function, not the get_the_author_meta('description') function. The added content formatting filters are only applied to output from get_the_author_meta() or the_author_meta().

    If you may the following change in your author.php template the issue is resolved.

    Problematic:

    <div id="author_left">
    	<p><?php echo $curauth->user_description; ?></p>
    </div>

    Working:

    <div id="author_left">
    	<p><?php the_author_meta( 'description', $curauth->ID ); ?></p>
    </div>

    Thanks for using the plugin, if you have a minute can you add a rating and submit that the plugin does indeed work for the version of WordPress that your are using.

    Thanks!

    Hi Kevin,

    Brilliant, that fixed it. I had tried the_author_meta but must have had the wrong formatting.

    Many thanks for the fast fix.

    Cheers,
    Nick.
