Attractive author pages and their presentation on the site

[ Article content is protected by Plagiashield ]


The authors of our blog, websites are really the columns on which it stands. They are one of the most essential elements of success websites. Therefore It is also worth ensuring that there is some space for them on the website.

Not only so that the user can check out all the pages of their favorite author, but so that the authors themselves feel via appreciated. Most themethat WordPress supports pages authorthat, unfortunately, usually look like this like the one in the screenshot below.


As you can see, it's hard to find any interesting information about the author here, not can be You can't contact him, you don't know what he looks like, or how he identifies himself online, there's just not enough information.

First, a handful of highlights.

In the theme code, the author is referenced using the code:

Since we have a ready reference in the code to the author, we can move on to making his page. If we want to create an individual pagesfor the author, we can:

1. create a page and redirect the address

This is probably the easiest solution for people who don't like or can't code. We create a simple page for our author, we arrange it beautifully using, for example, VisualComposer, whether another plugs with a similar effect, and then redirect the standard author link to it using the plugin wpRedirect.

For example:

Website the author has an address ourblog.pl/author/admin/so we create a page with the address ourblog/editor-tomasz-kowalski and we redirect the first address to this one. Additionally, thanks to this option it is much easier for us to optimize the subpage for SEO, website address it looks beautiful and you know who it is.

You can even leave it on comments, in order to users We could engage in a dialogue with the author about himself or his work. It all depends on our creativity.

TIP! Normally, to be able to set meta descriptions, we can use the plugin WordPress SEO from the team Yoast and then we can assign an SEO description to each author.


2. create a unique theme template for it

Just add the file: author-NickAuthor.php or author-NumberIDAuthor.php (Next in line wordpress will try to load author.php, i.e. for all other authors on our site. If it doesn't find it, then archive.php and if it doesn't find them, at the end it will use index.php. What For what the WordPress codex says, you can find it here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Author_Templates).

To create a page author-NumberIDAuthor.php The easiest way is to use single.php page, unless we have author.php. The author data that we can display, and which are definitely worth paying attention to, are:

 Editor's nickname
 Editor's email
 Editor's first name
 Editor's last name
 Editor's biography

Everything that can be useful is also described in the wordpress codex ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_the_author_meta ). Of course in this case we will need knowledge of HTML, CSS and php.

To conclude, a few examples

When looking for inspiration, it's a good idea to scour the internet for a site to look at. Additionally, by peeping at others, we are not forced to reinvent the wheel.



As we can see, we have a lot of interesting information about the author here: name, surname, date registration - On WordPress, such information will be displayed using , the number of added entries and comments - here the matter is more complicated, but there are ready-made solutions:

As a second example, I present the bbnews.co.uk author page, which is very simple, yet readable, and allows you to find the contact information of the site's authors.
