Provides the [author_bio] shortcode for embedding the bio of an author anywhere in the post/page content.
Simple install in /wp-content/plugins like any other!
Simply place [author_bio] anywhere within your post/page content.
Additionally, you can pass one of the following attributes to specify a different user;
[author_bio] [author_bio id="4"] [author_bio username="admin"] [author_bio email="firstname.lastname@example.org"]
You can also have the author's avatar added, by using the avatar parameter like so;
Warning: if you don't want the avatar, do not change the above to "no" as it will not work, simply change back to
It's possible to add the author's name, too by adding the name parameter;
Warning: As with the avatar option, leave the name parameter out completely to hide the name.
Additionally, you can make the author's name link to his/her website as defined in their profile;
[author_bio name="yes" name_link="yes"]
You can also customise the HTML output which defaults to;
<div class="author-bio-shortcode"> <div class="avatar"> <img .. /> </div> <div class="bio"> <p> ... the author bio ... </p> </div> </div>
There are 7 parameters that describe the HTML above;
Here is an example using all the HTML parameters to re-create the above example code;
[author_bio container_element="div" container_class="author-bio-shortcode" avatar_container_element="div" avatar_container_class="avatar" bio_container_element="div" bio_container_class="bio" bio_paragraph="true"]
This example shows how to remove the P tag from around the bio text;
