How To Add An Author Box On Your WordPress Posts

If you want to increase the amount of details shown about an author you can opt for an Author Box instead of WordPress’s default by-line. This also allows you to add your social media and other contact information easily.

Fortunately, this can be easily achieved by utilizing one of the many WordPress plugins. When selecting a plugin, be sure to keep the following points in mind:

  • It covers all of your needs
  • It’s still being maintained and updated by the developer
  • Compatible with your WordPress version

To get started you’ll want to:

  1. First, make sure you’re logged into WordPress.
  2. Next, install and activate the plugin of your choice. See How to Install a WordPress Plugin and How To Activate a WordPress Plugin, for additional help.
  3. Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin you chose, find it on the Dashboard menu, click it, and follow any prompts to change the settings as you need.

Here are a few plugins that you can try:
