HowTo display Author info in WordPress Single Postby Team Goelji on June 27, 2008
If you view a single post of a blog, you will see the author information at the bottom. Here we will see that how we can display such author info in a WordPress blog. That info can be edited in the control panel under Users->Your Profile.
The author’s photo can also display the image using avatars:
<img src="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/wp-content/themes/mimbo2/images/<?php the_author_lastname(); ?>.jpg" alt="" />
The author’s name is called like this:
<?php the_author_posts_link('namefl'); ?>
The author’s bio is called like this:
<?php the_author_description(); ?>
The author’s email is called like this:
<a href="mailto:<?php the_author_email(); ?>" title="Email this author">Email this author</a>
That seems like a pretty good start for building your own template themes. Now it’s up to the client to hire some talented writers and hope for the best.
