Do You Use An Author Box Plugin?

Last Update: April 18, 2020

Hello WA Family

I hope you are staying safe, and having a good day so far.

Thanks for your input to my GeneratePress Theme questions. I am now using it, and I prefer it to the previous theme.

Now, I have questions about an Author Box, because I no longer have an author box on my posts.

The GeneratePress free version does not offer an author box. So, I have been doing some research. I got the name of some Plugins that can be used.

However, when I go to install the Plugin. I see this: “Untested with your version of WordPress.”

I miss the Author Box and would love to have it again. During my research, I learned that a website is more trusted if an author box is showing.

So, here are my questions.

1. Do you use an Author Box Plugin that is compatible with the free version of GeneratePress. Would you recommend it?

2. Can you use a Plugin when WordPress says, “Untested with your version of WordPress?”

    Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Thanks for your support.

    Looking forward to your response and thanks in advance for your help.

    Have a wonderful day.

    Blessings

    Jackie

    I think if it is either the Ultimate Author box or Simple Author Box, it would be good.

    The reviews on those are good, I would use one, but am unsure because I saw the "Untested" in Wordpress.

    Hi Megawinner

    I contacted Site Support, and they said I could a Plugin to see if it works.

    I am trying "Simple Author Box," but so far is not working. I am unable to update my Profile.

    Hi Megawinner

    FYI - I was able to install the "Simple Author Box," after I confirmed my email address. There was no notification to check email, so I did not.

    Thanks for your input.

    I don't use an author box plugin but I wouldn't hesitate to try one that WP said was untested. I might read reviews of it first.

    I read reviews, but I am hesitant because of the "Untested" in WordPress.
