    Hi,

    Sorry if this is a duplicate question but I can’t find the answer anywhere.  I have added the author box to my posts but want to use it more as a ‘here are links for subscribing’ etc tool.  Above the description taken from my user profile there is ‘About <author name>’.  Does anyone know how I can remove or edit that title?

    Thanks, Amy

    Hi Amy,

    Do you have a link to your site?

    Which child theme are you using?

    Thanks Chris, the theme is Craftiness and the link is <a href=http://curlsandcoffee.com/2011/04/23/girl-time/>Curls & Coffee</a>.  Assume I need to take it off maintenance mode for you to have a look…? #novice

    Thanks for the link, I’ve looked at your site.

    Add the following code to your functions.php file in /wp-content/themes/craftiness/ and change the text to whatever you want.

    // Modify author box title
    add_filter( 'genesis_author_box_title', 'custom_author_box_title' );
    function custom_author_box_title() {
    return 'About the Author';
    }

    There is more info here: http://www.briangardner.com/code/customize-author-box/
