Anyway to create a seperate data entry box on a user profile to seperate author box information from that which shows up at the top of the author archives?
I already have tags/categories/archives to show the description only on the first page.
But the author archives outputs this text to both the author boxes AND their archive pages.
I need to seperate the two so I can put long form bios on the Author Archive pages (EAT for SEO).
If this is out of the relm of ordinary support, that’s ok, I can hire a developer to implent via code snippets, a child theme, or a plugin. But if you could at least point us in the right direction?
One of my author archive pages is in the link.August 13, 2019 at 3:09 pm #983447

Just to confirm, you want to remove the default author description:
and add some custom content at the same spot?
If so you can try using either the header element or hook element:
Let me know if I’m on the right track or missing something here 🙂August 13, 2019 at 3:44 pm #983463
The hook or header element looks like it would work except I need different content on each author’s archive. Neither the hook or header element lets you choose the specific archive like they do for categories or tags (which is strange as they are all basically the same thing with different filters).

You could try a plugin like Advanced Custom Fields to add a field to the user profile area in the admin. That way you could enter your data for each author, and then use one function in your Element to output it on the page.
