Support » Plugin: Simple Author Box » Showing SAB on home page posts and removing default author display

    Hi…

    I would like to use Simple Author Box. It is quite elegant. I would be willing to purchase if it could do what we need:

    1) our site has new blog posts in full on home page. author is not displayed there (due to theme I assume). We would like to have SAB on each of those home page posts.

    2) clicking on one of those posts and going to a single post page, SAB shows up nicely, but so does the default author box, so there are two on each post. I tried disabling the default box with CSS:

    .author_info.author.vcard {
    display: none;
    }

    that I found in another thread, but it doesn’t remove the default author display.

    Is it possible to what we are trying to do here? Thanks for any direction.

    Hi Pete,

    to hide the theme author box use:

    .author-info {
        display: none !important;
    }

    I’ll check what we can do for showing it on the home page.

    Thank you! That does work to get rid of the standard box on the post pages. Fingers crossed for item #1.

    Unfortunately the only solution is to manually add the author box and disabling the automatic box (click “Hide Author Box” from the edit post page).

    Last chance is asking the author of your theme for instructions about how to show the author also on the home page.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for researching Diego. I’ll try that. Seems like most themes follow the convention of no author on home page posts, unfortunately for me.

    There is a way but it requires to create a child theme, check this thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/display-post-author-on-front-page/

    Unfortunately this is related to the themes and currently I can’t think about a good solution that could work with all themes :-\

    (that thread is about Twenty Seventeen theme, you should adapt it for your theme)

    Thanks again. I will be experimenting!!
