WP About Author WordPress Plugin Review

By February 14, 2013

Follow me on:

If you use WordPress.org to manage a team blog with multiple contributors and you want to highlight each author's credentials in a well-designed bio that appears at the end of each blog post they write, then the WP About Author WordPress plugin is a great choice.

This plugin is easy to configure and includes options to change the colors, use text or icon social media links, and more. Follow the link to read my full review of the WP About Author WordPress plugin to see if it's right for your multi-author blog.

Thanks for the review. My goal with the plugin was to create something simple that gave users a few popular layout options to choose from. The real power is in the plugin’s API which allows developer to easily override the plugins’ core functionality without cluttering the front end.

I would rather see a bunch of small efficient plugins on WP.org vs a few plugin that do too much.

Thanks again!

You’re welcome, Jon! I’ve been using your plugin on http://www.womenonbusiness.com for some time now, and I like it more than the others I’ve tried and more than the hard-coded author feature that a developer created as part of my last theme design. It’s so easy to configure and the look is clean. I just wish I could figure out how to make paragraph breaks within the author bios in the WordPress profile editor.

This is actually one of my favorite plugins, unfortunately with the last WP update the color code option does not work which is disappointing if you wish to change your blogs color theme. Otherwise, it is a very professional and nice looking plugin. I hope Jon does an upgrade soon to return the color feature.

Line and paragraph breaks are automatic. Some HTML allowed: <a href="" title="">, <b>, <i>, <strike>
