Author Spotlight (Widget)

A Sidebar widget to display the Author(s) profile on any Page or Post along with Social web links.

Author Spotlight widget displays the profile of the author(s) with Social links (example: Website, Twitter, Facebook) and profile picture or gravatar on any post or page that has an Author. The widget automatically detects the current author(s) of the displayed post or page; just drag and drop the widget on your sidebar and you are done.

To display a custom photograph with the Author's Profile you may install the User Photo. In absence of this plugin the 'Author Spotlight" widget will fall-back to displaying the Gravatar associated with the user. If your posts have multiple authors you may use the Co-Authors Plus, the Author Spotlight will then display all the author profiles one below another for such post/page.

Note that installing the User Photo or Co-Author plugin is purely optional. This widget will work fine without them, but they are nice to have.

If you face any issues with the plugin or have any suggestion/feature requests please do submit there at this place.
