    Like in this Post https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/how-to-add-author-box-and-notification-bar/page/2/ I have setup an Author Box.

    But I have no avatar and no coloured box. But i have instaled the plugin for

    In the url, you see how it looks like


    So, the plugin that was mentioned, doesn´t seem to work. Also on user profile backened, i can see no gravatar, although i have tried both methods to upload and choose one.

    Is it possible to take an pic from the library without any plugin?

    And how do i get a coloured background for my author box?

    Hi there,

    edit this line of the PHP:

    <div class="avatar"><?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( $author_id )); ?></div>

    This time we’ll replace the PHP with an image like so:

    <div class="avatar"><img src="full_url_to_your_media_attachment" width="50" height="50"></div>

    To add a colored background look for this CSS and include the background-color property i have adder here:

    .author-box {
        padding: 4%;
        margin-top: 60px;
        font-size: .8em;
        display: -webkit-box;
        display: -ms-flexbox;
        display: flex;
        -ms-flex-wrap: wrap;
        flex-wrap: wrap;
        background-color: #ccc; /* Adjust color to suit */

    Hi David,

    perfect, that works well. And even better, without a nasty plugin. Thanks a lot.
