    Hello!

    Screenshot: https://gyazo.com/3e9c3faa5d91d399f1bd4620a6b04c05

    I would like unique text and social links for each author in the single post page hero element in the “Scribe” skin.

    Right now it fetches name and image from author but text and social links stay the same for all authors.

    How can I do this?

    Best regards,

    Hi there,

    1. Author Bio text.
    Add a GP Dynamic Content Block and select the Author Description.

    2. Social Links
    WordPress doesn’t add these meta fields in the user profile by default.
    Some SEO Plugins add them or this article explains how to add them yourself:

    Once the fields are available in the user profile you can set the Dynamic Link Type to Author Meta and add the meta field name.

    Hi David!

    Ok everything worked but I still don’t understand the last step:

    “Once the fields are available in the user profile you can set the Dynamic Link Type to Author Meta and add the meta field name.”

    How exactly do I do this? Where do I set the dynamic link type to author meta and where do I add the meta field name, (and what is the meta field name)?

    I installed Yoast SEO to get the social fields in profile.

    Select an icon button – see here:

    Make sure the # remains in the URL Field, then add the Author meta.

    To my knowledge Yoast adds the following links and their meta fields:

    facebook
    instagram
    linkedin
    myspace
    pinterest
    soundcloud
    tumblr
    twitter
    youtube
    wikipedia
