Co-Authors Plus: Author Page Name & Bio Confusion

Recommended Posts

I am using Co-Authors Plus to allow for multiple authors on my website. I am having an issue where the author that is listed first on a post is having their bio show up on the second author's page.  Here's an example: http://icatsbeta.com/code/author/joncarl/  Notice the name in the header and the name listed in the bio belong to two different authors.

 

The problem goes away when I deactivate Co-Authors Plus.

 

I reported the issue to the plugin author (link button on toolbar didn't work so sorry for pasting http://wordpress.org/support/topic/co-authors-author-profile-mix-up?replies=9#post-3802728) and they recommended I incorporate the Co-Authors Plus template tags into Pagelines.  http://vip.wordpress.com/documentation/incorporate-co-authors-plus-template-tags-into-your-theme/  

 

I'm not sure how to do this using the functions.php in the pagelines-customize folder.  Can anyone help?

Hi,

 

I don't know which of the four examples of code are needed for this.  For that you'll need to ask the developer or, test each one by trial and error.

 

We offer a plugin called Hooker that can help aid a bit in the implementation of the hook.  You can copy and paste one of these at a time to the functions.php found in the pagelines-customize plugin or through the Hooker plugin, which you may purchase via the Store. 

 

Unfortunately, we don't know this plugin or support third party products normally.  I'm sure though, this will be easy to do.

 

Though these docs are for a previous product, I believe the explanation of hooks and the video will suffice for your PageLines product.

I contacted the author of the Co-Authors Plus and he thinks he's figured out the problem.  He thinks there needs to be some code modified in the Pageslines PostAuthor plugin to fix the issue. Here's the link to the Wordpress Support thread so you guys can talk geek and see if this can get fixed.  Thanks!

Hi,

 

As I understand it, you'll need to use a child theme like Base Theme, then copy the Authors section to the child theme's sections folder.  Changes may be made directly to the copied folder in the child theme.

 

You may ultimately need the help of a professional developer to implement this if you're not familiar with coding. See http://www.pagelines.com/pros if you feel the need for additional help.

That was easy.  The author bios and names are working correctly now.  Thanks so much!

(I didn't mean to hijack this thread, it just seemed highly relevant)

 

I have also been playing around with Co-Authors Plus and I found this solution to displaying multiple authors on my blog and posts.

 

In pagelines/includes/class.shortcodes.php, in the pagelines_post_author_posts_link_shortcode function, I replaced:

the_author_posts_link();

with:

if ( function_exists( 'coauthors_posts_links' ) ) {
	coauthors_posts_links();
} else {
	the_author_posts_link();
} 

 

 

Now, I'm no experienced programmer, so I wonder if someone could tell me if this has any undesirable consequences? Also, I would prefer a solution that I could do in my child theme so it would carry over to new versions of the framework.

 

Thanks.

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::

      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      I updated my theme to framework and now can't get rid of this bright blue bar that appears across the top of every page. It says, "A fixed bar that makes it easy to promote important content.", and then a button that says, "Get PageLines".
      I am a novice and need help.
      Thank you!

      Hi,
       
      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
       
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
       
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
       
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
