Effective Bio Boxes


If you run a multi-author blog then this plugin will help you insert author information below each post. It is different from all the other bio box plugins because it supports post-specific bios.

Here’s why you should install this plugin:

Gravatar Support: It automatically fetches the user’s profile picture from Gravatar and displays it in the bio box.

Post-Specific Bios: Often while submitting guest posts, authors want to add a different call to action beneath each post (sometimes along with new links for search engine optimization). The post-specific bios were added to Effective Bio Boxes for this purpose. The plugin adds a metabox on the post creation screen using which your members can create such bios, which are then attached to the biographical information from the profile page and finally, inserted below the post.

Social Icons: It adds three new fields to the user profile form in the back-end area: Facebook URL, Twitter URL, Google+ URL. The links from these new fields are added to the author bio box in the form of social icons.

If you like this plugin please give it a good rating.
