  • Dear support team,

    I really enjoy your plugin. Great work so far! But now I have a question which is maybe simple, but very important for my project.

    I insert the author´s bio into my single.php via <?php the_author_meta('description'); ?>. In this field I just storage the author´s telephone number which is the same in every language. Polylang now automatically creates translation fields for this author´s biographical information. That means that I have to insert the telephone number x-times for every single language even though it´s always the same text string (the phone number). When I leave the translations empty in the frontend this area is empty too in the single.php (of course).

    Is there any possibility to say Polylang not to translate the author´s bio? Or is there a possibility to insert the author´s bio meta just from the default language? Maybe I could enhance the the_author_meta('description') with a language shortcut like the_author_meta(‘description’, de_DE)?

    Any idea to solve this little problem?

    Thanks a lot for your help and best wishes from Germany!
