    Is it possible to include user profile information in the sidebar other than just the user name?

    Why is something that should be so simple so difficult? I would think the blog owner's profile in the sidebar should be a standard option in any blog. I've tried a few widgets that don't work, and found a few templates that have the profile hard coded into the sidebar. Shouldn't it be easier and more dynamic? It's very easy to show your bio, complete with photo, in Blogger, so please tell me I'm missing something in WordPress?

    Thanks.

    Use profile pic plugin, it automates the whole process.

    Use the shortcodes [printprofile] and / or [printprofilepic] within posts/pages, or the widget for a sidebar bio/profile. Also comes with a bunch of template tags and an example author template.
