  • In reply to: Want to add user-bio formatting to child theme


    Now that is pretty funny! I think I’ll explore the plugin angle first to see if something is available. Yes, I could create a bio page for each contributor, and then link to the standard author’s page (sans bio). This is not a BIG deal, just an intellectual challenge.

    Thanks, Ken. That helped a bit. The code in question is in loop-author.php in the graphene theme:

    <?php do_action(‘graphene_author_details’); ?>

    <?php if (get_the_author_meta(‘description’) != ”) : ?>

    <h4><?php _e(‘Biography’, ‘graphene’); ?></h4>

    <p><?php the_author_meta(‘description’); ?></p>

    <?php do_action(‘graphene_author_desc’); ?>

    <?php endif; ?>

    …but I still cannot figure out how to keep it from stripping out line breaks. Lots of discussion online about this, but nothing that’s working with Graphene.

    I’m already using a child theme, but it’s just CSS overrides. Here’s an example of the page where I’d like to see the bio broken up into smaller paragraphs:


    Not looking to include a lot of fancy HTML, just want to preserve the white space that breaks the bio up into paragraphs.

    Syahir, the PIE.htc does not appear to be working on your demo in IE8. No gradients, no rounded corners, etc. The blue section headers on right-side nav menu do span section width on demo, unlike what was in screen shots sent previously.

    Noticed the same thing. On first load (both IE and Firefox), top-side page menu is vertically stacked and unformatted. Bleeds over into content below. On refresh, everything clears up.

    What is this PIE thing? Among the other issues reported (FYI, I’m still using IE 8), the PIE script was throwing multiple Javascript errors, something about lacking permission as I recall (the exact error eludes me now — I was too worried about all the other “stuff”).

    Update: never mind the first part of this (http://css3pie.com/). Something I have played with before, but definitely not working with latest version of theme.

    In reply to: Is there a way to roll back latest update?!


    Syahir, I’ll send you some screenshots (via email) and then roll back. I’ll compare IE to Firefox (which doesn’t look too bad, but I still like the cleaner look of the prior version) for you, so you can see what I’m complaining about…

    In reply to: Editing the CSS Stylesheet


    Where can I find this code?

    <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_url’); ?>”

    type=”text/css” media=”screen” />

    I’d like to change it to this:

    <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_url’); ?>”

    type=”text/css” media=”screen, print” />

    So I can create my own print-friendly stylesheet as outlined here:

    Never mind — I see it now…

    In reply to: Header Option


    Syahir, I upgraded yesterday and did not notice this change. Is it in a still-future update?

    In reply to: Header Option


    Thanks, Syahir. Really a great theme!
