[Resolved] [Plugin: WP Biographia] wp_biografia shortcode not parsed

  • Hi, i’ve just started using your plugin.

    I am trying to use the wp_biografia shortcode to show a list of authors on my blog and following your instructions i put this in a page:
    [wp_biographia author=”*”]

    I have inserted it from the wywsiwyg editor and then as simple html but it still doesn’t show up. Have you got any hint-suggestion?

    Hi. What version of WordPress and of WP Biographia are you running? I’ve just put together a test page showing the short code running in author mode, which has the following code:

    Test markup page to show the WP Biographia short code running in user wildcard mode.
    <h3>Shortcode - No Overrides</h3>
    [wp_biographia author="*"]
    <h3>Shortcode - Prefix Override</h3>
    [wp_biographia author="*" prefix="About"]

    … you can see this running at http://test.vicchi.org/contributors/ … it should work regardless of whether you use WYSIWYG mode or HTML mode to put the page together.

    @blig … any progress on this issue on your side?

    -Gary

    @gary: The shortcode i was using is actually correct, so i dont’ know what was the problem at the beginning. Now it just works (wp 3.3.1 – biografia 2.3).

    @vicchi

    (scratches head) … that’s odd, but at least it’s working for you now, which is the main thing. If this happens again then please let me know and we’ll see if there’s something we can track down.

    Hello Gary
    First of all, thanks a lot for this very good plugin
    I have a website with many members
    I want to present all the authors on a same page with their WP biographia box
    When I use this short code [wp_biographia author=”*”] this is all the registered membres of my site who appear and not only the authors. Is there something to do ?
    Thanks !

    @vicchi

    The plugin currently users the terms user and author interchangeably and assumes that if you have a user account on a WordPress blog then you have the right to post there, so [wp_biographia author="*"] will, as you point out, pick up all users (registered members).

    For now, there’s a workaround. In the plugin’s settings/options explicitly exclude those registered users that you don’t consider to be authors and use the shortcode in configured mode, along the lines of [wp_biographia author="*" mode="configured"].

    But you’ve also pointed out a good use case here that’s lacking in the plugin … support for WordPress Roles … I think the addition of another configuration option for roles as well as adding another parameter to the shortcode, along the lines of [wp_biographia author="*" role="author"] would be a useful addition.

    I’ll get this into the next version of the plugin … probably sometime towards the end of the week.

    In the meantime, let me know if the workaround works for you.

    @vicchi

    I’ve added support to the [wp_biographia] shortcode for a role attribute, where role is one of administrator, editor, author, contributor or subscriber. This only works when used in conjunction with the author attribute in wildcard mode, along the lines of …

    [wp_biographia author="*" role="author"]

    This will be part of v3.1.0 of the plugin, but it’s not on the WordPress plugin repository yet. But in the meantime, if you want to get hold of this, you can grab the latest version of the plugin from GitHub. Just drop this version of the plugin into /wp-content/plugins/wp-biographia.

    @gary
    Thanks so much for your answer and for your help !!!

    I droped the new version of the .php file via FTP, everything works perfectly when i had [wp_biographia author=”*” role=”author”] shortcode on my page : only the authors are displaid !

    I have just an issue with the box format. The bio description is displaid on one single line and not like a paragraph (this is wired because on my other posts it works fine).
    Any idea on how to fix that (I suppose it is a CSS issue?)
    If i can resolve this styling issue, it will be perfect then ! WP Biographia will answer to all my needs

    Sorry I am not a developper, neither a webdesigner… Thanks so much again for your help !
    Best regards

    @vicchi

    @roopos … can you provide a URL for where this is happening and I’ll take a quick look at the CSS …

    -Gary

    @gary
    My site is under maintenance i just reopen it for you ! Tell me when you are done 😉

    Here the page where I list all the authors of my blog… Some of them need to fill there bio but you have two examples where the bio does not dissplay properly

    Maybe it is a theme issue ?

    Thanks

    @roopos – Sorry but I’ve only just had a chance to look at this and I can see your site has gone back into maintenance mode … any chance you can open it up tomorrow (I’ll be busy on other things all day today) … ?

    Hi Gary,
    No problem
    My website is now online

    You can check the CSS if you want (and have enough time of course) :
    http://www.travel-vox.com/les-auteurs-du-blog-et-de-we-travel/

    I would have also another request finally…
    I would like to use informations from WP Biographia in my author page :
    http://www.travel-vox.com/author/admin/
    I would like to display Facebook and twitter details that are stored in WP Biographia plugin.
    Do you know how I can edit my author.php (I guess I have to add some information from WP biographia but don’t know which lines…)

    Thanks so much again Gary for your precious help !!

    @vicchi

    So I’ve just taken a quick look at this …

    You can check the CSS if you want (and have enough time of course) :
    http://www.travel-vox.com/les-auteurs-du-blog-et-de-we-travel/

    It looks like you’ve enclosed each of the shortcodes within pre tags … this is probably what’s causing the text not to wrap as you’re telling the enclosed content, including the <p> tags that enclose the biography text, that the formatting is as you want it to be.

    I would have also another request finally…
    I would like to use informations from WP Biographia in my author page :
    http://www.travel-vox.com/author/admin/
    I would like to display Facebook and twitter details that are stored in WP Biographia plugin.
    Do you know how I can edit my author.php (I guess I have to add some information from WP biographia but don’t know which lines…)

    … not quite sure what you mean by this. Do you want another Biography Box to be displayed for that author’s page (like I have here: http://www.vicchi.org/author/gary/) … or that you want to extract specific fields from the user’s profile (which are added by WP Biographia) and display them in the author template in some way?

    -Gary

    Hi Gary

    thanks so much for your precious help

    You were right, there was pre tag in the HTML editor. i do not know how they appeared, but I removed them and everything displays perfectly. Thanks a lot my friend

    Regarding my second answer, sorry if I were not clear enough (english is not my native langage)
    Your second sentence is exaclty what I need : I want to extract specific fields from the user’s profile (which are added by WP Biographia) and display them in the author template in some way (on author.php) ! is it possible ?

    Thanks again !
