I shall happily wait for the officla v.0.40 release :)

Well, the beta v0.40 that’s available is what I anticipate the final version being. Nobody’s given me any negative feedback yet so I think it’s good enough to release as it is.

Sounds good. Are you planning on gift wrapping this and putting in on http://stefdawson.com/ anytime soon?

Try my beta page. That goes for anybody else wishing to try it out. Please let me know anything you find out, good or bad.

Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

It seems that if I add an image type field to my user and do not assign an image that this code will not return null or an empty string (as I had hoped) but it returns the placeholder:

<txp:smd_bio_info fields="author_image" label="">
IMAGE: {smd_bio_author_image}
</txp:smd_bio_info>

Not sure why that one would show output — it’s supposed to keep quiet if it’s missing. I’ll look into it. For now, does the following code fix it, using the new <txp:smd_if_bio> tag?

<txp:smd_bio_info fields="author_image" label="">
   <txp:smd_if_bio field="author_image">
      IMAGE: {smd_bio_author_image}
   </txp:smd_if_bio>
</txp:smd_bio_info>

EDIT: get conditional statements in the right order.

Nice try, no luck, though:

Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

One more thing. I noticed that when having a lot of images it gets very tedious to use the drop down list. Could you maybe add an option so that for the type image you can specify a category which can be used to select an image for smd_bio? If it can be set optionally it could greatly improve the management of several user’s images.

Uhhh, from the help:

Value: … for images, it can be used to specify the parent category name under which the desired images are stored. If omitted, all images are available in the image select list

Is that not what you mean?

btw, I’ll look into the error message you cited, hopefully later today.

Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

Others have cryptonite as a weakness, mine seems to be literacy, I fear. Thanks for pointing in the right direction, this is exactly what I was looking for.

:-) No worries, I do hide things in the docs sometimes.

Regarding the error message, can I just ask: do you only have one extra bio field defined in your theme (i.e. the author_image)? That might account for the warning message and the fact the plugin is falling over. If that is the case I’ll make sure I defend against that eventuality in the code.

Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

I got two fields: author_bio (textarea) and author_image (image).

Re: smd_bio : store additional biographical info about your users

Actually, no worries. I’ve just fixed the plugin to get rid of the warning. Try re-downloading the beta and try again.

Sorry for the bug, and thanks for bringing it up.
