It is possible to modify the author pages provided by PublishPress Authors.

Finding the default author pages templates #

For users of the Free version, templates you can modify are in the /wp-content/plugins/publishpress-authors/src/templates/parts/ folder. There are two default templates:

  • author-pages-grid.php
  • author-pages-list.php

Users of the Pro version will find the templates in /wp-content/plugins/publishpress-authors-pro/vendor/publishpress/publishpress-authors/src/templates/parts/
