Hello,

GREAT plugin, have been using it for a few years now.

Okay 1 issue so to speak which has been mentioned time and time again.

The Google+ tab doesn’t work ESPECIALLY if you go to linkedIn then back again OR any variations. You can see here: http://www.umbrella-web-studio.co.uk/remove-wlw-and-rsd-wordpress-links/

We just updated today (manual update is a pain in the A*) previous to that it was working great. Now its not :(

Advice please??

Kind Regards

ThematoSoup

Hello,

Thanks for your kind words and sorry for the issue you’re having.

Could you please 1. clear your cache, 2. disable it altogether or 3. preview the post with any of the default WordPress themes?

~Dragan

P.S. Are you sure that prior to updating, everything was working fine with the Google+ widget?

Hello,

okay after days of playing around with this we did the following:

1. deactivated ALL plugins – no effect 2. deactivated and reactivated the author box plugin – no effect 3. cleared ALL caches WITH cache plugin ON and OFF with no effect.

Regardless of which way I do this I cannot get the Google+ widget to work even doing everything apart from using on another theme WHICH I don’t have.. BUT that defeats the purpose as it should AND did work prior to update :(

ThematoSoup

I still think it’s something your theme does. Please check the screenshot – https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7059892/umbrella-web-issue.png

Would you please install any of the default WordPress themes – Twenty Thirteen or Twenty Fourteen and preview your posts, we’d then know for certain whether it’s a theme related issue.

Hi Support, Is there a way to reduce the amount of text shown on mobiles so you need to click “more” to few the bio information say after 15 characters. The reason I ask is when you view the authorbox on mobiles the profile bio takes up allot of screen real estate.

ThematoSoup

Not from plugin options.

Hi, there is a little bug after the last update. If you click from tab to tab, the content jumps down.

you can test it here (At the bottom of the page): http://designers-inn.de/

Best, Marco

ThematoSoup

Glad I could help! :)

If you find the plugin useful and worthy of recommendation, please take time to rate it.

5 Stars :)

ThematoSoup

The rating can be done in your “Downloads” section, but thank you so much :)

Cheers

In the widgett, is it not possible to show whichever author is the author of the current post being viewed?

ThematoSoup

It seems that the widget doesn’t allow for not selecting an author. Our developer will respond to this issue as soon as he becomes available.

Thanks for your patience and sorry for the problem you’re having.

~Dragan

ThematoSoup

Unfortunately, we had to disable that option due to performance issues.

I’ll have to alter the documentation to reflect that. Again, I’m sorry.

Strange behaviour – when I access my site (currently in maintenance mode!) via my computer (Windows 7 prof. and Firefox), then all is fine with the plugin’s author box.

When I access the same page via my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, then I cannot access a post at all, because of this error message:

http://screencloud.net/v/4j1l

Yes, Twitter Consumer Key and Twitter Consumer Secret have been created and are right in the plugin’s settings.

This issue appears only on my tablet not on Firefox for Windows 7 prof. computer.

Any idea? Thanks.

ThematoSoup

Hi,

Can you temporarily disable maintenance mode and try accessing the page on your tablet then?

Hello!

Longtime user of your plugin. Thumbs up!

I’m using the filter “Modifying User Meta Fields Used for Social Tabs”: http://docs.thematosoup.com/plugins/fanciest-author-box/#Display_custom_tab

Which works great for pulling regular user fields over as replacement for FAB user fields. Such as:

if ( ($social_network == 'facebook') && (get_the_author_meta('facebook') !=='') ) {return 'facebook';} QUESTION: I can’t seem to get any results with the Custom Tab though: Goal is to pull the User URL over and display it in this tab. I’ve tried: if ( ($social_network == 'custom_tab_content') && (get_the_author_meta('user_url') !=='') ) {return 'user_url';}

It shows the Tab, It shows my title, but underneath is blank.

I’ve even tried replacing ‘user_url’ with ‘facebook’ in the code just for testing purposes and it still only shows blank. So I assume it’s the ‘custom_tab_content’ part that’s wrong?

FOR REFERENCE: On the FAB SETTINGS page I’ve checkmarked “Display Custom Tab”, added the word “Website” in the title field, left the Custom Tab Content field blank, and tried all combos of author-overide (I assume “Only Content” would ultimately be the choice).

Help in pulling over the regular user_url field and display it in the custom tab would be greatly appreciated!

ThematoSoup

Hi, sorry for the late reply, our developer will answer your question as soon as he becomes available.

Thanks for your patience.

Can you email me login for your website? slobodan[at]thematosoup.com

When I add the author box using PHP in my template, it doesn’t style the box at all. No CSS. Am I missing a step here somewhere? Just looks like this : https://www.dropbox.com/s/ir7gljja5axsdx7/Screenshot%202014-07-23%2023.46.42.png

ThematoSoup

Sorry, can you try something like this:

add_action( 'wp_head', 'my_theme_print_fab_color_settings' );
function my_theme_print_fab_color_settings() {
    if ( '' != ts_fab_generate_color_settings() ) :
        echo ts_fab_generate_color_settings();
    endif;
}
Default-user

Ok yes that works

I can put the box via shortcode anywhere in the site (page, post, post custon)?

ThematoSoup

Yes, shortcode can be used anywhere where you would be able to use other shortcodes.

Just bought the plugin and Installed… but i had a conflict with the theme… at homepage i have a problem with the article dates, at the bottom of the article, in the mansory area… you can see that there ir just the date (http://www.empreendersaude.com.br/) while in the original i should have date + shares + category.

What can i do? I really wanna keep using the plugin.

Tks

Default-user

Hey Dragan…

Yes, i spoke to then, but they said that somo plugins might get in conflict. As soon as i deactivate fanciest, the site comes back to normal. They asked me to talk to the plugin developer

Best

ThematoSoup

The plugin cannot affect the themes coded with WordPress best practices or any other themes that use WordPress standards and conventions. We’ve never had this kind of issue before, but I’ll ask our developer to check again if it can be something on our part.

In the meantime, can you try changing the “Execution priority” number. Try the following numbers: 2, 15, 99, 999.

Regards,

~D

Default-user

Unfortunately it didn’t work :/ its very weird…

I want to know if I could hide the fanciest author box options from a non-admin user in their profile? When they are editing their profile, I do not want them to be able to mess with this information. (was not available 1 year ago)

ThematoSoup

Hi,

This is not possible without editing the plugin. Those fields are available to anyone who can be author of a post or page.

~Slobodan

Hi, I purchased this plugin and am having issues registering on your website to post in the forum for help (I’m not receiving my email with my password, I even clicked forgot pwd :( I am trying to add a Contact Form (via contact form 7 OR any other plugin) into the ‘Custom Tab’ and it is not rendering the tag. Is it possible to have the custom tab display a contact form? If not is it possible to have the “custom tab title” link to a specific url for each user and on that page I will be able to have a contact form. Thank you for your help!

ThematoSoup

Hi,

Sorry about the trouble you’re having with our support forum. There were never any issues like this before, maybe the emails are going to your spam folder?

Anyway, how are you trying to add the form? I have not tested custom tab with CF7 shortcode specifically, but I did with some other shortcodes in the past and they did work.

So, can you confirm if you’re using shortcode?

~Slobodan

Default-user

Hi Slobodan. I tried the CF7 shortcode ex [contact-form-7 id=”4123” title=”Contact form 1”] and that is exactly how it shows up on the Custom Tab. I also use the Post Snippets plugin, and created a snippet with just text in it and put that code [testing] in the Custom tab and it still will not render, just shows the [testing]. If there is a shortcode you would like me to try please let me know. thanks!

Does it work with a dark theme.

ThematoSoup

I’ve never tried it, but it does have color pickers for almost all the author box elements.

~Dragan

does this support multiple authors yet?

ThematoSoup

Hi,

It’s always supported multiple authors. If you mean multiple authors for any single blog post, then yes, it supports Co-Author Plus plugin.

~Dragan

Hi there,

Great plugin. Is there any way to change the link on (see all) on the latest posts tab from www.url.com/author/username to www.url.com/profile/username ?

Also, on the main bio page (first tab) of the author box, is it possible to have the name as a hyperlink to the page www.url.com/profile/username ?

As i want these links to go to a profile page as opposed to the author page?

thank you

ThematoSoup

Hi,

Sorry, but without editing plugin files (which I don’t recommend doing, because you will lose changes when you update) you can’t change the link in latest posts tab. We use a native WordPress function there (get_author_posts_url) and unfortunately, it doesn’t use any filter that would allow you to do this.

You should be able to change the link in Bio tab, just enter your /profile/username/ URL in URL field in your user profile.

~Slobodan

Hello,

I just downloaded the update for Fanciest Author Box. I think you password protected the .zip file without meaning to.

When I extract the .zip file it is asking me for a password. What is it?

Please Email me or something and not say that you can’t post it here. I purchased the plugin.

Thanks

ThematoSoup

Hi,

The zip file is definitely not password protected, to be 100% sure I just tested it again and it’s fine.

~Slobodan

Is it possible to minify it?

ThematoSoup

Please be more specific. It is possible to minify any .js or .css file, but I don’t know what you’re using for minification, so I can’t give you an answer.

~Slobodan

Default-user

w3tc. But If I enable auto minification, that it doesn’t show author information, actually, it doesn’t show any information. The only thing that can be seen is box with tabs. But no info. That’s why I asked If it’s possible to minify it.

ThematoSoup

Hi,

If nothing’s showing that most likely means your minification has caused a javascript error which prevents tabs from loading.

~Slobodan

How can I increase the avatar to more than 64X64 ??

ThematoSoup

It’s not from the plugin, it’s in the theme folder (/wp-content/themes/ken-child). Probably best to contact your theme author.

JeffreySummers

there is a custom.js file in the root.

ThematoSoup

I know, but your website is trying to load file at that location I gave you and it’s not finding it there.
