Displaying author profiles

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi again, For some reason I am unable to publicly view an author profile on my site. Everything just defaults to a list of posts by the author. There is no description or avatar. Do I have to install BuddyPress to display profiles? Or maybe, in all my mucking about I've removed something important??? I had BuddyPress installed at one point but have de-activated it. and have been experimenting with various plugins... (a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!!) Example author page: http://fish-recipes.net/author/mauimike/ Thanks again,

Thanks, but where do I find the author.php files for PlatformPro?

Thanks Catrina, but that still is not quite what I am looking for. When I try and view a contributor's individual profile all I see is a username followed by the post excerpts. I do not see where a user's profile info (full name, URL, description, etc) is publicly displayed other than in a sidebar widget I have installed. I would like for that personal info to be displayed immediately above the post excerpts, but I don't know how to do that. Sorry to be such a newbie!!

Ah, I see. By "above the post excerpts", do you mean that you want the info to be displayed between the post title and excerpt text? Also, would you like to remove the "by *AUTHOR NAME*" text or leave it there?

That doesn't bother me so much. Is it possible to modify an author.php template from, say, twentyten, and drop it somewhere in the file structure and have it work? (But I don't know where I'd put it).

It might be possible. Have you seen any example of you want on any other blog?
