WP Biographia
[resolved] Can you place the box in different places for archive and posts? (5 posts)

    Is it possible to have the author box at the bottom of posts but place the author box at the top of an archive page?
    I know there is an option for either one or the other in the plugin.

    For Archive:

    Author Box

    list of stories

    for post:
    post test
    Author Box

    Any way around this?

    Hi Paul,

    WP Biographia doesn't support this I'm afraid. You could probably accomplish this by turning off support for archive pages in the plugin and by adding a call to do_shortcode ("[wp_biographia]"); in your theme's archive template instead though.

    good idea .. .I tried. I am using genesis framework but I keep getting a weird error.

    add_action( 'genesis_before_loop', 'show_author_box_above_archive' );

    function show_author_box_above_archive() {
    echo'This is before the loop';
    echo do_shortcode ( '[wp_biographia author="heather" ]');


    I have also tried other hooks like:

    for some reason the text only shows up once but...
    the author box is repeated for every article on the page?

    I am stumped.

    Sorry but I'm not a Genesis expert. Not too sure what to suggest here. Maybe the Genesis support forums ... ?

    I'm going to flag this thread as resolved as it looks more like an issue with the way in which the Genesis framework and/or the changes to your template are interacting than a plugin issue. If you have any more questions or problems, feel free to reopen and report back and I'll do what I can to help.
