About Author Box

Description

Easily display an information box for the post author after or before post content.

Aside of the automatic display before post content and after post content you can also use a shortcode to display an author box. The shortcode is [about_author_box]

You can change the default settings for the shortcode in the “Shortcode” sections of the settings page. You can also pass parameters as part of the shortcode which overwrite those settings.

Accepted parameters are:

  • avatar ( 1 or 0, 1 to show 0 to hide )
  • avatar_size ( numeric value, default 120 )
  • avatar_style ( square/rounded/circle )
  • avatar_position ( left/right )
  • name ( 1 or 0, 1 to show 0 to hide ))
  • date ( 1 or 0, 1 to show 0 to hide )
  • bio ( 1 or 0, 1 to show 0 to hide )
  • social ( 1 or 0, 1 to show 0 to hide )
  • style_border ( none/horizontal/full )
