PublishPress Authors and Elementor

PublishPress Authors works well with the Elementor plugin.

There are 5 options for showing Author profiles on your site. All of these will work with Elementor. For example, Option #1 will automatically show authors under your posts.

However, we have made sure to make sure PublishPress Authors works with inside the main Elementor layout builder.

Perhaps the easiest option for the Elementor layout builder is Option #2 in the link above.

First, edit a post or page and use the “Authors” box to choose your authors:

Authors Elementor
Authors Elementor

Second, use the “Authors” widget to place the author profiles into your content:

Elementor Widget
Elementor Widget

Author page title and Elementor Pro

Some sites have issue with the page title on author pages when using Elementor Pro. Instead of displaying the name of current author in the title, it displays the name from the author of the first post listed on the page.

If you see this issue you can try customizing the child theme to display the correct title, or try disabling a filter for “the_author” on PublishPress Authors defining a constant:

define('PUBLISHPRESS_AUTHORS_DISABLE_FILTER_THE_AUTHOR', true);
