Simple Author Box


Adds a simple author box with Gravatar image below the articles on single page. You can add Twitter and Facebook profiles.


  • The author box

  • The fields you need to fill.


Upload the plugin to wp-content/plugins or install it using the automatic installer.
Activate the plugin. Once the plugin is activated it will delete YM and AIM fields in your profile and add fields for Twitter and Facebook profiles. The plugin checks if the fields are empty or not, and if they are empty, it wont display them.


Can you add [insert here your social media site of choice]?

No, I will like to keep it simple. But I guess you can customize it to fit your needs, the code is pretty straight forward.
