Lets you easily add author images on your site.
The author image plugin for WordPress lets you easily add author images on your site.
It creates a widget that you can insert in a sidebar, or much about anywhere if using the Semiologic theme.
Alternatively, place the following call in the loop where you want the author image to appear:
<?php the_author_image(); ?>
To configure your author image, browse Users / Your Profile in the admin area.
You can configure the widget so it outputs the author's description in addition to his image.
This fits well on a site where the author's image is placed in a sidebar, or the Semiologic theme when the widget is placed immediately after the posts' content -- i.e. "About The Author."
For sites with multitudes of authors, the widget offers the ability to insert a link to the author's posts -- his archives.
Normally, the widget will only display an author image when it can clearly identify who the content's author actually is. In other words, on singular pages or in the loop.
If you run a single author site, or a site with multiple ghost writers, be sure to check the "This site has a single author" option. The widget will then output your image at all times.
The Semiologic forum is the best place to report issues. Please note, however, that while community members and I do our best to answer all queries, we're assisting you on a voluntary basis.
If you require more dedicated assistance, consider using Semiologic Pro.
