We have added a few more fields for each author that you can fill out in the Users > Add New or through an existing user profile so that the author pages look a bit more filled out. This starts with you filling out the Biographical info about me section so there’s a sentence under the posts that you write and on your author page. (Author pages are located at yoursite.com/author/authorname)
You should also fill out links to any of your relevant profiles in the following fields so those icons will show up in your author info. (Author info can be globally disabled on posts via the Customize > Appearance > Cortex Theme Options section.)
For those of you looking to customize the author sections, if you use a child theme, you can easily override any of our templates by following the same directory structure in your own child-theme folder. For more on this, go to our Customization section.
A note about the Author Gravatar or Avatar
or whatever the hell you kids call it just get off my lawn
To change the Gravatar for your account, you’ll have to change the account information at Gravatar that’s associated with the author email. Our theme pulls in that image via their API.
