    I’m not quite understanding why we have such a big author box with so little text and so much empty space on image pages.

    Any way to adjust the proportions or to retract more text? I actually would even get rid of the picture.

    I agree about that, the text needs to show more words. I was thinking about that the other day, but couldnt be bothered to mention it with all the changes going on, its the least important issue on a never ending list.

    I dont agree about removing the image, I like that.

    Here’s a temporary fix to reduce the size of the author box by giving the content fields and the avatar slightly different dimensions.
    You can check it out at or any image other page.

    /* Author Bio Box Image Pages */
    .avatar-150 {
    max-width: 75%;
    .symbiostock_author_info {
    width: 70%;
    .symbiostock_author_avatar {
    width: 30%;

    I made mine smaller too, with a combination of style changes (Dragonfly) and a code change to put the heading inside the box instead of across the top.

    For example:

    In symbiostock_author_box.php:


    <div class="symbiostock_author_info col-md-7 ">

    <span class="panel-title" itemprop="" ><a class="ssref" title="Author " href="">

    <p >

    I posted all the style changes here:

    But the part for the bio box was:

    /* author box on image pages */
    .bio_box {
    padding: 0px;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    background-color: #F8F8F8!important;
    /* make everything in the bio box transparent so the background of choice will show; minimal padding */
    .symbiostock_author_info.col-md-7.panel-body, .symbiostock_author_avatar.panel-body.col-md-5, .author-bio.contributor.vcard{
    background-color: transparent!important;
    padding: 5px;
    /* Author name a little bigger and bolder */
    text-shadow: 2px 2px 8px #E0E0E0;
    color: #181818;
    font-size: 2em;
