I think so? So when you click on the author's name, it surfaces a filtered list of all posts by Shells.  774537692_ScreenShot2020-08-26at3_50_12PM.png.a328feb2491a23d06e357a211ac0ab2f.png

My issue is there's no "Posts by Shells" at the top of that page of filtered results. It would be cool if I could get the author profiles to surface on top of all those filtered results pages, like you could in 7.0:

Ah... I see. Yes some of the templates in 7.0 have that feature. Brine for one but others don't.

It appears as if that feature was dropped for 7.1 or hasn't been implemented yet, if planned. It wouldn't hurt to ask SS to add that back into 7.1 or beyond.

No SS built-in way unless both of us missed a setting somewhere.

However it may be possible to add a similar behavior back in, in 7.1, with the magic of some Javascript. The code would detect page URLs that end with "?author=[author id here]". If so then go and grab the author name and insert an area above the posts for that author that says Posts by... Not sure about grabbing the profile pic for the author, I'm just riffing here. If you want to pursue that avenue you'd need at least the business plan and someone to create the Javascript.

When I filter blog posts by author or category in 7.1, there's no visual indication of what page I'm on.

7.0 used to include text indicating what filtered results you're looking at. Something like "Posts by Author X."

Is there any way to add that  back in? 

Hi @acid__bat, have you discovered a solution for this? I'm having the same issue with the category filter.
