I noticed that a couple of days ago. However, I didn’t test it out before I upgraded to 1.7.3, so I don’t know if the new google font script is causing it. My drop down doesn’t work it IE8 either. Since my site is fairly new, I’m switched back to not using it, but I will keep check on this post in case you guys find a fix.
Yes, this Facebook stuff is a HUGE pain I’ve discovered. I’m going to spend some time tonight looking at the AddThis feature of the theme. It looks like everything you need is already here in the theme. I’ve just got to learn how to use it all and I will be dangerous, lol.
When you say “PHP widget,” is that a plug-in? I have exec-php plug-in installed, but I can grab the other if it’s better.
Thanks for your help!
I have to offer my apologies for my ignorance on this, because I found the problem. There is a setting in the Yoast SEO plugin that you can select to “Disable Author Archives.” The plugin suggests that if you run a one person blog, you should probably tick the checkbox. It then uses a 301 redirect to the homepage when the author template is called.
To answer Kenneth’s question though, here is what I have in the functions.php file in my child theme:
remove_filter( 'wp_title', 'graphene_title' );
add_action( 'init', 'my_remove_filter' );
The reason I included that is because it does work perfectly with the aforementioned plugin without having to have the plug-in “Force Rewrites.”
Thanks again for the help, and once again, I do apologize. Good lesson learned though. Syahir, I rated the theme 5 stars at WordPress also. Just wanted to say thank you for a great theme.
That’s what is driving me nuts, because it doesn’t work that way for me. I’ll give you a link to the site after I tell you how I have things set up. I’ve tried it other ways too, but when I click my name link in the one test post that I have, it takes me back to my home page.
I have three pages:
Home Page (Set to “Theme default” template, and set as static front page under “Reading” in WP settings).
Posts Page (which is set as the page for posts to display)
My child theme only has a style sheet, a header, and a funtions file. I used the functions file because I found directions that Syahir had written previously on how to get the Yoast SEO plugin to work correctly without having to use the “Force Rewrites” option in the plug-in. That is all I have in the functions.php file (and it made the plugin work).
I’m never going to use the author’s page for anything on this site, but I may on another. That’s why I just want to see what I’m doing wrong. It’s obviously something I’m doing wrong because you guys have no problem with it.
Thanks for you guys help. The least I can do is go rate this theme 5 stars, so I’m going to do that now. The link is chriskidd.info You will see the one test post in the sidebar.
Last question, I promise 🙂 How do I view the author page for myself, like the example that you showed me On each post, I see the gravatar and the biography information that is set under my user profile, and I see my name at the top of the post (I’m going to disable it later because there’s no need to have that show on all of my posts since I’m the only author), but how do I see my own author page displayed like you had yours?
I guess what I’m asking is, what if I had three users that wrote posts my for site, and someone wanted to see their author page and the posts associated with that person. How would they get to it (like the example you showed me)?
I know I’m making this harder than it has to be and I do apologize.
Can I ask what the “admin” means in the link you provided to the demo page? I’ve used wordpress for a couple of years but have never really had other users or authors. It’s always been one person sites. That’s why I figure I’m probably using the author page the wrong way. If it’s meant to be used differently, I would love to learn something new.
Ok, mine looks about like that. You do know, however, that the template is not available to select and apply to newly created pages. I had to copy the author.php file to my child theme, and then change the header of the author.php file so that it would be detected as a template that I could select when I created my author page.
I guess what I’m asking is, is this the way it is meant to be? It’s working and looks just like the demo example, but for someone who does not know about child themes, or much about WordPress (I’m certainly not a pro myself), they would have no way of applying the author template to a page.
Thanks again for your help and patience. I’m sure I’ll be back with questions because I love this theme 🙂
