Add Author Image

Recommended Posts

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.

Can you point us to a post where it's not working?

      I have added a Lax section on the footer of this site: http://www.ics-law.org.php72-38.lan3-1.websitetestlink.com/ but the background image is not displaying. When I first add the image it appears in the background, but then after saving and reloading it is gone even though the thumbnail indicates it's still there. Screenshot attached.
      Any suggestions?

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Hey there,
       
      I am working on BentleyRolling.com. I used grams on MoonbodySoul.com and all the images are cropped to a square, whether they are square or 4:5 when posted on instagram, they still get cropped to a square. This looks way better than some being squares and some being 4:5. Did something change since I designed MoonBodySoul.com with Platform5? Can you help me crop all images to a square on BentleyRolling.com 
       
      All the best,

      How do I control the lightbox effect on the plugin "popthumbs"?  On mobile, it opens up much to small then when expanded it opens to large.  I would like to control the the lightbox to like 90% of the viewer window but I can't figure out how/where to control that.
      Site example

       
      Thx
