Odai Author Widget


I created this plugin to address a problem brought up in this forum thread:

This plugin creates a simple widget you can drop into any sidebar. On single posts, it will display
the post author’s Gravatar photo, as well as their name, website, and biography specified on their profile.

On other pages, it does nothing and is invisible to visitors. Options include changing the widget title and the photo size.

You can style the widget using your own CSS if you like. The CSS ID for the widget is #odai-author-widget



  • Fixed typos in the readme file


  • Option for widget title
  • Option for Gravatar photo size (in pixels)
  • Cleaned up messy code


  • Added basic functionality.
