Items displayed are:
- Display name of the author of the post or page
- Gravatar of the author (set at www.gravatar.com)
- Link to other posts by the same author
- Link to author’s website
To make the author box appear you need to activa the plugin and go to the Cool Author Box settings under Settings and select if the box should appear under posts, pages or both.

The bio image is your Gravatar and is linked to your email address. If you don’t have a Gravatar yet you can get one by visiting www.gravatar.com. If you have a Gravatar but it is not displaying it means you need to change your email address in the user admin section to match the one your Gravatar is registered with.
