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?

      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.

      Hi,
      I am using pl-section-journey and hiding most of the images. When running the page via google speed insights, it tells to optimize all the images that are in this plugins default. (e.g. https://queue-it.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-journey/images/drawer-5.jpg ) Like this one that is not visible on the website, but is a part of the plugin and comes up in google insights.
      I've deleted all the images in the plugin, but they still seem to come up. Ref. this page: queue-it.com/features

      Hi there!
      I'm trying to create a featured image for my new blog post. It has text in it, and when I add it as a featured image some of the text is cut off on the right.
      Could I get the ideal dimensions for featured images? Or, a way to customise the dimensions so that they are easier to fit in the way I need?
      Thank you kindly
      Nate

      Hi,
      Is there a way to target all images in a WordPress DMS site at once, in order to make them width=100% on mobile portrait mode? In other words, I am having trouble identifying the element for all image classes.

      Thanks,
