    Hi everyone,
    I just bought the Gallery theme for my WordPress site & have a question. I’m not a coder but I’m reasonably comfortable working in WP. When I saw the preview for this theme, it did not show a large Gravatar and About box with author info, etc. and now it comes up in all my posts with no apparent way to delete it. Is there a simple way to get rid of that or do I need to delve into CSS? Thanks in advance for your help!

    The blog I need help with is isthisfuture.com.

    Hi,

    Could you provide a screenshot, since I don’t have access to your site?
    This will help me determine the issue.

    I appreciate your help.
    Thanks,
    Angela

    Hi Angela,
    Sorry–new to this–how do I attach a photo to this discussion? Or do I send to an email addy? The site is not live yet as I am working out the design issues. Thanks!

    Hi Lori,

    Take a look at the example from our demo: http://gallerydemo.wordpress.com/2014/01/23/jelly/ At the bottom of the page, about author, is this what you are seeing?

    Is your blog a multi-author site? This will appear.
    In the admin side of your site go to Users > My Profile. You will see a bunch of biographical fields (Name, Email, Location, etc). The ‘description’ mentioned above is the ‘About You’ field. If this is filled out it will show the author block for each author.

    Please let me know if this helps. Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thanks!

    Right, yes, that’s my Gravatar box. It’s my info for all my WordPress sites so I don’t want to change the content per se. What I just want to do is take off the About Author info on every post on this new website and I don’t know how to do that in Gallery. (I’m happy to have it somewhere on the site just not that big on the bottom of every page.) The way I envision the layout of the posts, it doesn’t make sense visually or content-wise to do keep the default design. I’m guessing it may involve CSS so maybe it’s too complicated which is fine. I just need to know… thanks!

    Hi Lori,

    I know if you remove the description field within Users > My Profile, this will take a way the author bio, however after testing, I see that it still keep the Gravatar image.

    I will create a ticket for my dev team to think about adding this to the customizer as an option, in the meantime, the author box is it.

    Please let me know if you have additional questions.
    Thanks,
    Angela

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks for your persistence on this! I don’t want to be a bother! :) Can you also ask them to give an option that does not require deleting the description from My Profile because that would delete it across the WordPress universe. In other words, it’s a global change, not just a site change. On the other hand, I may be your only user who cares about this so if you can’t/don’t want to give this sort of optionality, I totally understand. Just let me know either way when you know. Thanks again!

    Hi Lori,

    When our dev team fixes this, it will not be a global change. They will make sure it only changes items on the site.

    Thanks,
    Angela

    Hi Lori,

    You will now see a new option in your customize area.
    Appearance > Customize > Individual Post Page
    by default it shows the author info but if you check that box it will hide it. :) Enjoy!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
    Have a great day!
