Re: bos_author - author url customization...

Uhm… Your usage of article_custom and bos_author looks weird, and I don’t fully grasp them. I don’t use them that way.

Let me say that Bos_author is only meant to be used inside an article (i.e., after the title, before body, or after the body…). Anywhere in the article form.

To list your 4 authors in any part of the site, you should use article_custom with section=“author” without the limit option, and without referring to my plugin in form. Title and permlink should be enough.

To list the author name and link it to the bio page in their individual articles you should use bos_author section=“author” (or whatever) in the individual article form only.

I can’t see a reason to use that article_custom with limit=“1” anywhere, from my point of view, but if I miss something let me know.

(added: In other words, maybe I don’t understand what are you trying to accomplish, exactly)

Re: bos_author - author url customization...

My page template “archive-list” uses this from.
Now,when i click on authors name ..i want its information should be displayed in some other page-“author link”.

Do you use bos_author in the individual article or in an article list? Your explanation sounds confusing to me, because first you say that you’re using the tag in the full article, then you say “archive-list” page…

Now,when i click on authors name ..i want its information should be displayed in some other page-“author link”.
So on this page i have written
<article_custom with limit=“1” section=“author”/> as author section uses this page..

Simply use bos_author section=“author” in the form, where you want the name linking to the bio. And forget article_custom for this usage. It doesn’t make sense. Try and let me know, or answer my question above.

Re: bos_author - author url customization...

The problem is: why do you use article_custom to display a full article?? With limit=“1” it will show always the first article, from the first author…

Use a simple article tag. no limit. No section=“author”. In the article form you put bos_author section=“author”.

Let me know if this solve.

Re: bos_author - author url customization...

I can’t help since I don’t understand. What does “showing always 2 author bio” mean? I thought it showed always the first autor bio. Has then something changed?

Can you paste the code you are using now (without article_custom?)?

If you also have a url I can give a look, because your code usage sound strange to me and I suspect we are not thinking about the same thing.

Re: bos_author - author url customization...

it means its always showing 2 nd authors bio whether clicked on 2 nd ,3rd or 4th author name..

i’ll give u a more detailed explaination…

To dispaly any full article i am using default form.While dispalying full article,i want to show its author name,its posted date along with body..

so i have written
<txp:bos_author section=“author”/>
<h2 style=“margin:0px; padding:0px; border:none;”>
<txp:title/>
</h2>

</txp:php> <div class=“postInfo”> <strong><txp:posted/></strong> <txp:body/>
</div>

this article i am showing on a page template—“archive”

when i click on authors name of this article ..i want to show that authors information..
but that information (of author) should be displayed on page template “author_ link”

so on this page i have written code like this…
<txp:if_sectio name=“author”>
<txp:article form=“about_us”/>
</txp:if_section>

in about form i am showing title and body of the artilce…not anything else..

By problem is..
i am getting 1st authors info..if i click on 1st author name..
but when i click on 2 nd or 3rd or 4th authrs name it always showing bio of 2 nd author …

how to link the bios of all these authors to their names correctly…
sorry for large explaination..but i am searching for this from yeserday..but still not getting any appropriate solution..

please help me..

Re: bos_author - author url customization...

Your way of doing now looks correct. The problem must be somewhere else in the middle. Some ideas:

  • Are the article author bio corrected published, if you access them from typing the correct url?
  • Are the articles all assigned to the appropriate author?
  • Are the name of the author proprerly written?
  • Have you tried to change the name of author section? Since this is also the default name txp use for default author listing, I prefer to change it to “contributors“or anything else.

This is working for me and other sites, so the problem need to be caught somewhere. If you could provide an url then it would be great.

Re: bos_author - author url customization...

I just recovered this from the wayback machine. I haven’t tested it yet.

# bos_author v1.0
# Simple replacement for the <txp:author />. You can customize the section url to which every author name point to, with author name encoded along the TXP convention ( - instead of + for spaces)

Wow, I’m not sure this is needed anymore, nor that it’s working, but it’s nice to see this coming from the past, thanks… :)
