I want to use a plugin to display an author bio box below all my blog posts. But when I enter any text in my WordPress user “Biographical Info”, I get two author bio boxes (from the plugin + some native WordPress one). How do I disable the WordPress author bio box?
Thanks!December 8th, 2019 at 01:10 #96369
WordPress doesn’t include a way to disable the author biography and all default Templates (which our themes are inspired from) display the bio when it is set.
If you need to disable the theme’s bio inclusion you’d need to customize the
content/author-bio.phpfile (preferably through a child theme).December 25th, 2019 at 03:13 #96917
Thanks. But I can’t find any author-bio.php in the content folder. Could you please point me to the correct file to edit?January 14th, 2020 at 03:08 #97612
Hi just checking in to see if there are any updates on this topic 🙂January 19th, 2020 at 19:35 #97847
Sorry, the indicated file does not apply to Parabola. In Parabola the author information is handled directly by the file responsible for the author archive: author.php (in the root of the theme), which you can copy over and customize in your child theme.January 20th, 2020 at 09:37 #97877
Thanks for the reply.
I moved the author.php file to my child theme, and removed the below code.
Unfortunately, the author bio box is still displayed after each post. To be sure I flushed the cache and tried another browser, but still the same result. 🙁
What can be the issue? Thanks
// If a user has filled out their description, show a bio on their entries.
if ( get_the_author_meta( ‘description’ ) ) : ?>
<?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( ‘user_email’ ), apply_filters( ‘parabola_author_bio_avatar_size’, 60 ) ); ?>
</div><!– #author-avatar –>
<?php the_archive_description( ‘<div class=”taxonomy-description”>’, ‘</div>’ ); ?>
</div><!– #author-description –>
</div><!– #entry-author-info –>
<?php endif; ?>February 11th, 2020 at 04:10 #98773
