    Unless I missed it, where is the option to turn on the author block for blog articles?

    Also, how do you turn off the image hover lightbox in the blog post? Thanks.


    1) If you want to add the author blog to single post pages open up single.php and replace:

    get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'index' );


    get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'index' );

    $author_id = get_query_var( 'author' );
    if(empty($author_id)) get_the_author_meta('ID');
    $gravatar = get_avatar( get_the_author_meta('email', $author_id), '75' );
    $name = get_the_author_meta('display_name', $author_id);
    $heading = __("About",'avia_framework') ." ".$name;
    $heading_s = __("Entries by",'avia_framework') ." ".$name;
    $description = get_the_author_meta('description', $author_id);

    $description = __("This author has yet to write their bio.",'avia_framework');
    $description .= '</br>'.sprintf( __( 'Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud %s contributed a whooping %s entries.' ), $name, count_user_posts( $author_id ) );

    if(current_user_can('edit_users') || get_current_user_id() == $author_id)
    $description .= "</br><a href='".admin_url( 'profile.php?user_id=' . $author_id )."'>".__( 'Edit the profile description here.' )."</a>";

    echo "<span class='post-author-format-type blog-meta'><span class='rounded-container'>{$gravatar}</span></span>";
    echo "<div class='author_description '><h3 class='author-title'>{$heading}</h3>".wpautop($description)."<span class='author-extra-border'></span></div>";

    2) To remove the preview image link open up includes/loop-index.php and delete following line:

    if($slider) $slider = '<a href="'.$link.'">'.$slider.'</a>';
