Anything boxes on Author page only shows author posts

Recommended Posts

I put an anything boxes-section on top of the author page, and want it to show recent posts from a category. But it will only show posts (ie boxes based on posts) from the author, so mostly it doesn't show anything (since the author still has no posts in the category). 

 

Is there any way to fix this? Seems like a bug.

I got a reply from Adam Munns by email. Posting it here if others have the same issue:

 

 


the intended use is to automatically pull in the current authors posts on a author archive.
 
If you want to remove this functionality then I can help you do that…

Basically you'd have to open the section.php file for this section and find this line
 
if(is_author())

$ab_params[
'author' ] = get_query_var('author');
 
Then comment it out.

      Hi,
       
      I know Pagelines is not the developer of Anything Boxes but since you operate the store I wanted to ask the following question.
       
      Anything Boxes isn't officially updated for DMS yet but shows up in the store on one site I'm buidling: http://www.lovo.nu (http://cl.ly/image/2u0I1i3q1v1H). In another site (http://www.janpeeters.nl) that's on the same Pro version of DMS, Anything Boxes isn't visible. I'm hoping someone can shed a light on this erratic behaviour. I'd love to use Anything Boxes (that I bought) on both sites. 
      I read somewhere on the forum about Wordpress SEO being a problem for disappearing sections, but deactivated that didn't bring it back on my site.
       
      Thanks, Jan

      Hi,
       
      Yesterday I recreated my website in DMS (from Framework 2) This worked quite smooth (half a days work with base child theme). There were some usability 'problems' that I will report later on.
       
      I used the section Anything-Boxes which I bought a while ago for Framework. It showed up in my DMS sections a few days ago so I could recreate my site. But last night it disappeared again. From my sections and from the store. So hopefully someone knows how to get it back. I'm using Flipper in the meantime, but the multirow anything-boxes works better for me.
       
      Thanks, Jan

      Is it possible to state an offset for query_posts in "Anything Boxes"?
      I need to show the latest post on the top in a Feature and the rest of the posts in Anything Boxes. Could you please show me how I can do that, or if it is possible could you you add this in the setting?

      Hi Adam,   Here our conversation by e-mail about allowing tags for the excerpt. I'll post it again here as a feature request since I did not see it being implemented.   Kind regards,   Willem

      <img src="http://oudisnieuw.net.websrv.makeweb.nl/images/cafestoel-volendam-225x300.jpg" alt="Cafestoelen" style="max-width: 100%"> Hi Adam, in the above code you see that in your coding the image gets the ALT tag from the pagetitle. However, it is possible to give an alt text with every image in WP. 
      My preference would be that the alt tag is from the image, or that we can manage this inside your plugin.
       
      Can you change this (important for SEO).
       
      Kind regards,
       
      Willem
