  1. Whether installing or updating, whether this plugin or any other, it is always advisable to back-up your data before starting
  2. Unzip author-images.zip inside the /wp-content/plugins/ directory (or install via the built-in WordPress plugin installer)
  3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' admin menu in WordPress
  4. Go to the Users -> Author Images admin options page. Optionally customize the options.
  5. Create the directory(s) that will contain author image(s) (path must be relative to wp-content/ directory) (by default this would be /wp-content/images/authors/)
  6. Put images into the specified image directory, using the author login name or the author ID as the filename, with whatever extension you plan to support, i.e. admin.gif or 1.gif
  7. (optional) Use the provided "Author Image(s)" widget, if so inclined.
  8. (optional) Modify your index.php and/or other template files to include calls to <?php c2c_the_author_image(); ?> and/or
<?php c2c_wp_list_authors_images(); ?>

. (Read the rest of these notes for more info.) 1. (optional) Add the custom field 'author_image' to posts to explicitly define an image for the author for just that post. Otherwise, the plugin will proceed to attempt to find the author image. 1. (optional) Add the class "author_image" to your CSS file to control the display of the image located by c2c_the_author_image(), and/or add the class "list_author_image" to your CSS file to control the display of the images listed by c2c_wp_list_authors_images().
