About Me sidebar widget (10 posts)

    Inspired by Lorelle's article Who The Hell Are You I grabbed a text widget and added an "About Me' to my sidebar. After trying to get things aligned, formatted, and adding a few links I started thinking a widget might be nice for this. I had not seen anything like this around, so here it is, my first widget.

    Feedback appreciated!

    v0.9 available now. Fixed text-alignment 'stuck on center' issue. Added ability to configure image and link titles.

    v0.92 posted. Image 'title' now applies correctly to both alt= and title=.

    You should add your widget to the Widgets section of the Codex.

    Added in 0.95: Function getimagesize() added to maintain xhtml validity, page speed and to simplify use (no longer have to enter dimensions manually into aboutme.php).

    Fixed in 0.96: Align function didn't work in some themes.

    I like you site a lot. I'm going to create a link to it for my classes I teach in the fall.
