AuthorSure on DIYThemes Thesis Theme

Thesis does not add a rel=”author” link to each post so you can use AuthorSure to do this.

By default the Author profile information has bad alignment and text size so you are advised to add a few lines to custom.css, (located in the wp-content/themes/thesis/custom folder) to produce a better looking author page

This AuthorSure settings for Thesis are:

Author Post Settings: Footnote or Author Box

Author Page Settings: As you like it

Advanced Settings: use default settings

Recommended custom CSS to improve formatting of the bio:

.custom #authorsure-author-profile, #authorsure-posts-heading {
font-size: 1.3em; margin-top: 10px;
}

  1. I want to change the order in which autorsure appears at the end of the post. How do i insert the codec manully?

    • Please can you specify exactly what you want to do?

      • Hi Liz,

        I guess that he uses several plugins that appears att the end of the post and wants to change the rendering order.

        I am too having this issue. I am developing a new theme and want to use footnotes in that theme. In my case the AuthorSure-box is rendered above the footnotes. I would want to change the rendering order of these plugins so that the AuthorSure-box is truly last in the post.

        If you don’t understand what I mean I’ve taken a screenshot here:

        • Hi Jarno,

          The solution here depends on what ‘hook’ the footnote plugin is using.

          You probably can fix this with a few of lines of code.

          If the footnote code is using the same hook as AuthorSure then add the following code to your theme’s functions.php to make AuthorSure add it Author Box later


          add_action('init','custom_authorsure_add_later',20);

          function custom_authorsure_add_later() {
          remove_filter('the_content', array(AUTHORSURE,'append_post_author_box'));
          add_filter('the_content', array(AUTHORSURE,'append_post_author_box'),1000); //I am guessing the footnote is using something less than 1000
          }

          If the footnote code is using a different hook, let’s say it is called ‘myfootnote’ then the trick is to run AuthorSure later at the same hook


          add_action('init','custom_authorsure_add_later',20);

          function custom_authorsure_add_later() {
          remove_filter('the_content', array(AUTHORSURE,'append_post_author_box'));
          add_action('myfootnote', array(AUTHORSURE,'append_post_author_box'),1000); //assuming footnote is using something less than 1000
          }

  2. Hi,

    I need a little help. Please see the screen shot. I am using thesis, and by default in thesis navbar is supposed to be above the header, whereas, i have tweaked it to be below the header. Now the problem is because of this (i am assuming) the author byline is being displayed above the header. Kindly help.
