First, this is simple and great - many thanks.
Question 1. I want to utilize the short code to produce a hyperlink to an author's URL please can you give a code EXAMPLE of how I use [authorinfo nospan="true"] in combination with [authorinfo field="url"] to produce this.
Question 2. Is there a shortcode for users' avatars (I am currently using the 'user avatar' plugin) - if this is not possible in conjunction with the aforementioned plugin perhaps it works with the 'user photo' plugin?
