Post Author Link Questions


First of all I have to say this is a very nice theme. I do have a question though. When I post to my blog and publish it, it shows my name as normal as the author of the post. But when I click on the post name it re-directs my back to my home page and the url changes to /author/nickname. Is there any way to change the post author link so when I click on it, it will take me to my Google+ profile?

Thanks for the help.

Author pages are working just fine by default:

These has something to do with your customizations or plugins.

To verify Google Authorship you can use one of several plugins that does just that. Personally I like SEO by Yoast ( which does much more than just verifying Google Authorship.

Hi Aigar,

I have a question related to Author post. I have added the plugin for co-authors plus so that I can allow guest author to post and have their name on there without having to set up a user each time I have a guest author. Unfortunately, I am not able to get the name to show up on the live site. Is there anything I need to change on in the theme in order for this to work?

Here is the site:

thank you!

There is no author bio printed by default int Travelify theme and you will have to add it on your own.

You can modify travelify_theloop_for_archive in to show different layout when author archive page is in use: is_author

Then you will have to call for author description there <?php the_author_meta('descriptions'); ?>

Here you can read more about it:

Might take some time to implement.


Thanks for this nice theme. I have 2 questions :

First question :
I would like to delete the name of post author (and his symbol) in entry-meta in homepage and in the post. I tried to delete the php code “<span class=“author”>”><?php the_author(); ?></span>" in page named “content-extensions.php”, but my change doesn’t appear in frontoffice.
Can you explain to me the process ?

Second question :
I would like change the place of button “Read more”. I would like to insert before entry-meta for a biggest visibility.
What is the process ?

Thanks a lot for you response and sorry for my bad english :wink:

For hiding post author I would use a much simpler approach than trying to edit the actual code itself.

Simple add this to Theme Options - Other - Custom CSS

.author {
    display: none;

Your method didn’t work because there are several places where post author is defined in that file. For each loop (archive, search, single etc).

For read more button, just move this code where you want it to appear in structure

echo '<a class="readmore" href="' . get_permalink() . '" title="'.the_title( '', '', false ).'">'.__( 'Read more', 'travelify' ).'</a>';

Most likely you want it to appear right before:

<div class="entry-meta-bar clearfix">

But again, “Read More” button is defined several times in that php file, so you will have to edit all of them to get the best results.

Thanks a lot for your help and your responsiveness !
