Position of author box (tried tips,didn't work) (7 posts)

    Hey Dragan,

    First off, thanks for a great plugin. I bought Fanciest Author Box but then found this and felt the less tabs suited our theme better. Both are fantastic plugins though.

    My issue is with positioning of the box.
    I've tried the usual method of add_filter( 'the_content', 'ts_fab_add_author_box', random number ); but it isn't working for me.

    As you can see here: http://www.krank.ie/category/society/tom-cruise-the-irish-scientology-protests/ If I want to break my posts up into multiple pages the page numbers appear below the author box.

    I just want to move it below the page numbers so as readers don't miss them. Any idea why the usual method isn't working?

    Have you tried it with Fanciest Author Box and then changing the "Execution priority" in Display Settings? I just want to make sure that it doesn't work on your website.

    I can move it above or below the "share this" buttons, but no further. I've also disabled the buttons in case they were causing a problem.

    I'm just trying to get it to sit where the red line is http://imgur.com/HiQKuvt

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to get it to show below pagination links. The plugin is added by being appended or prepend to the_content function that displays post content. The pagination links are added by another function, so it's impossible to have the author box below them.

    I am having the same issue and I saw you made it... care to share the solution?

    I had the same problem, but I found solution!

    This is how I did:

    1. Go to: /wp-content/plugins/fancier-author-box
    2. Modify line 143 in file ts-fab.php:

    `add_filter( 'the_content', 'ts_fab_add_author_box');

    by adding ",0" (without quotes) right after 'ts_fab_add_author_box'

    3. Result should look like this: add_filter( 'the_content', 'ts_fab_add_author_box', 0 );

    This modification gives highest priority to author box and it will be loaded first! :)

    Thanks for posting this. However, even with highest priority assigned to ts_fab_author_box function that will only make sure it is the closest one to content of all the other functions attached to the_content hook. If paginate links are added by using a separate function and not the_content filter, this solution won't help.
