The P4 team is currently running some changes to the site. Please be aware that you might be redirected to some other sources on the world wide web or you will find the content you are looking for in another format. If you notice anything missing, please let us know in the p4-general Slack channel. Thank you!
1) Go to WPML’s > String Translation and add authors as translatable strings
2 ) Go to WPML’s > Theme and plugins localization. Scan the template for translatable strings, this should collect the authors strings for translation:
3) Go back to String Translation and edit the corresponding author bios:
4) Enjoy your new translation.
KEY INFOs 👇👇
For the language switcher to show, the author must have written posts in both languages
Authors should have their bios in both languages to appear
if YOU translate a post to test this, remember to change the post’s author to the corresponding author, otherwise, the translated post will belong to “admin”, your user
Here’s also a snaggy .gif with the final result:
Check your profile!
You can always go to any post you wrote and check how your Bio at the bottom of the post looks. Like the guy below that thinks he’s the only one good at cooking peperonata
Editing an Avatar for someone else
If an Editor cannot/will not change the Avatar themselves then an Admin can do it for them. The downside to this is their User account will no longer be associated with their personal email address and thusly they will no longer get email notifications for comments on their posts. We strongly encourage you to have the Editor update the Avatar themselves.
As an Admin: To change an Editor’s Avatar you must use an email address to which you have access in order to complete this process (see step #10). WP will not allow you to use the same email for multiple users. So as a Admin I would use, for example, my webmaster email + User’s Global ID e.g. [email protected]
Go to the User Profile in P4 and generate a new WP PW (don’t worry, the Editor should be using their Google/GP login, not WP. So you will not be locking them out)
Make a note of this PW + the User Name of the Editor you are working on, then Update User/Save
Sign out of P4
Sign in as the User, using their User Name + the new PW you generated
Go to ‘Profile’ in the left nav
Click on “You can change your profile picture on Gravatar.”
Sign in to Gravatar
Click on ‘Add Email address’ and enter the new address you created in step #1
Go to your email and click on the link to verify the new identity
Go back to Gravatar
Choose the email address you want to modify
Click on ‘Add new image’
Click on ‘Upload new’
Click on ‘Choose image’
Click on ‘Next’
Set rating (in case your Gravatar may not be suited for younger or sensitive audiences. ? )
Select where (which email) you would like to use the image
