Author Info Plugins

  • Are there any plugins that will allow you to add more info to the author info page such such as links to your social media profiles for every author? Single author blogs are easy to do you just hard code it into the author template file, multiple authors would need to add it it to their individual author information to make it work though, which should be doable through a plugin even if one isn’t currently available…

  • i use http://www.dealsway.net/2007/11/05/wp-user-manager/ to add fields to the users profile.

    sadly i then have hand coded widgets in my theme function.php to display that info on the user pages. here’s a template code if it helps

    function wpum_author_lastFM($args)
    {	global $wp_query, $userdata;
    	$post_obj = ($wp_query->post);
    	if ($lastfmid)
    	{	echo $before_widget . $before_title . 'Last FM' . $after_title;
    		[yr code here ]
    		echo $after_widget;

    and you need to register_sidebar_widget the widget too

    it would be great if a lot of plugins ‘options’ pages provided ways to delegate settings to post author metadata, rather than just the one ‘universal blog setting’.

    say if the value given was in square brackets or prefixed ‘auth:’, that the value was read from the post author’s metadata field instead of

    This looks good and as soon as the coffee sets in it might actually be something I’ll try. thanks
