    Hello,

    I have tried to figure out how to replace the present author profile at the top of the Author Archive page, which looks like something the cat dragged in, with the great look and feel of the Simple Author Box profile. Unfortunately, I have not succeeded.

    I do hope that you will be able to help me out.

    Thank you and best regards,
    Finn

  • Hello Finn,

    Just went to that page but I could see any image there.
    Also please keep in mind that the author page is not styled by the plugin but rather the theme, so the best way to solve this would be to reach out to the theme’s support team as they should be able to help asap.

    Thank you,
    Mihaela

    Hi Mihaela,

    Thank you for your reply.

    There is not an author image.

    The only thing which shows up is the name of the author who wrote the posts displayed at the author page and the summary in a bad format. Look for it at the top of the page.

    My idea is to use the shortcode of Simple Author and by this hopefully, generate the same nice look and feel design and layout as the Simple Author plugin does at the end of the posts.

    I just need to know where I shall put the shortcode or if there is another way to make it happen.

    Best regards,
    Finn

    Thank you for explaining!
    Please see this ticket here on how to add the author box in the author page: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-insert-author-box-in-authors-page/

    Hi Mihaela,

    I don’t hope you have closed this support ticket for god, because I have not managed to get it right.

    We don’t have an author.php file, so I created one and copied in:

    <?php if ( function_exists( 'wpsabox_author_box' ) ) echo wpsabox_author_box(); ?>

    … I get the simple Author box very nicely at the top of author page but the rest of the page looks like a nightmare. I tried different variations of the code but no one is working. Then I vent for the single.php file but as we already are using it for the Simple Author Box at posts I didn’t think it would work.

    Please let me know how to do this – if the way forward is to create an author.php file I hope you will provide me with the right code for this file.

    Best regards,
    Finn

    Dear Finn,

    I would really love to help, however creating an author page is not related to this plugin (not something the plugin does) and unfortunately I cannot help you with that or provide the author.php code because my information is limited in regards to how that page is created.
    This seems like something more related to your theme and I recommend reaching out to them for help with this.
    Also here are some links that might help: https://code.tutsplus.com/articles/how-to-create-a-wordpress-authors-page-template–wp-23573
    https://www.wphub.com/blog/posts/how-to-create-an-authors-page/

    Also please keep in mind that apart from creating it you might also need to style that to match your theme.

    All the best,
    Mihaela
