FAQ

  1. The avatar isn’t showing up. Why not?

Avatars must be set to show on the blog you are featuring.

  1. I’m featuring one author, but seeing posts from other authors. Why?

Make sure to also tick the checkbox “Limit Posts to Author.” The default behavior is to pull all posts, even if an author is identified. Also, note that if you use an author’s name that is not an author, it defaults to pulling all posts.
