    I am new to WordPress and Genesis and trying eleven40 theme. (switching from Joomla :-))
    I entered the code below for author box to functions.php but it is not displaying on blog pages.
    //* Display author box on single posts
    add_filter( 'get_the_author_genesis_author_box_single', '__return_true' );
    
    any help appreciated very much,
    Thanks

    Hi,
    Very good question. First of all, I have to help someone who has suffered the misery of using Joomla, just as I have. :-)

    Your code sample above is just fine. I do have one other thing to look at. Go to Users, and select “Your Profile”, or find yourself in the list of Users. Take a look at your profile. Scroll down aways, and you should see “Author Box” way down the page. You’re see checkboxes for both Posts and Archives. I’m guessing that neither of those is checked, so you could check the Posts one (or both).

    If that fixes it, then you can also fill in “biographical info” to get some content for your author box.

    If that’s not it, maybe there’s something else in that theme that is interfering with it. I don’t have eleven40 myself, so I can’t look at its functions.

    Best, Dave
