    Hello,

    Here’s my website: https://www.greensplatter.com/

    At the bottom of all articles, I’d like to include an author box.

    I’ve read through a few of the threads that discus the “author box,” but full disclosure …

    I found them a bit confusing.

    I’m not a tech-savvy person, and all of this is VERY new to me.

    So, what’s the simplest, lightest way to add an author box at the end of all articles?

    Thank you for your patience – it’s much appreciated!

    Warmly,

    L.

    Another very easy option would be to use a plugin like this:

    It’s up to you 🙂

    Leo,

    Thanks for this!

    I tried following the first video link you sent over for creating an author box.

    Unfortunately, at the very end, after selecting the “post” option from the drop-down menu, there was no “all posts” option.

    Just “posts” and that’s it …

    I went ahead and hit “publish,” as it was the last step, but nothing actually appeared on the blog.

    I’m sure I made a mistake somewhere, but yeah – where did that “all posts” option run off to?

    Warmly,

    L.

    Hi Lucas,

    To clarify: Were you pertaining to setting up the display rule location?

    Can you share a screenshot of what you see on your end?

    For single post pages, it should be set like this – https://share.getcloudapp.com/xQuzYNJn

    Elvin,

    Hey, man! Hope you’re well!

    Okay, so I got the thing fixed that I’d mentioned to you in my previous message …

    New issue, though. Haha.

    This is the video I followed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMhUo91RjsE

    Here’s a blog post of mine – scroll down to the bottom, and you’ll see my author box …

    * Link – https://www.greensplatter.com/why-model-your-disc-golf-game-after-philo-brathwaite/

    All I have down there is a Twitter icon (that’s all I want), but – in the final product – it’s nowhere to be seen.

    I’ve played with this for about 30-ish minutes, but can’t seem to get the right-aligned Twitter icon to appear …

    Any suggestions?

    LMK – thanks!

    Warmly,

    L.

    Can you share the exact settings you have for the Block element you intend to use as the author box?

    You can provide us temporary backend access if you need help in checking things out. You can use the private information text field to provide the details – https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-the-premium-support-forum/#private-information
