Question

Posted · Report post

Hi I would like to know how to add an image for an author/user.

 

Specifically I am referring to the "PostAuthor" section where the image is displayed.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

The image or avatar is actually using the Gravatar service, if you haven't already sign up and add your author image and it will eventually show up in your Post Author section.

Basically, sign up to Gravatar, add an image and then add this email to your authors account on your Wordpress website and click save. It can take up to several minutes, but after that, the image you assigned to email address via Gravatar will display on your Post Author section.

I've added a PostAuthor section to the /author/username page. The name and bio are displaying but not the author's image. I've tested this using an author profile that has a Gravatar association as well as by adding a photo using the Easy Author Image plugin.

 

In both cases the author's image is not displaying despite the fact that I see div.img.thumbnail.author-thumb in the page's HTML. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
