    I'm nearly a total newbie to customizing WordPress themes so I'd need clear and step-by-step explanations on how to display an author description in my sidebar...
    Thanks in advance :)

    Obviously you'll need to be widget-ready: http://automattic.com/code/widgets/

    ...and be using a widget-ready theme: http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/WordPress_Widgets

    Instead of bumping you could read about the Author Template tags:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags#Author_tags
    where in most of the cases it says: the tag must be used within the Loop. The sidebar is not within the Loop.
