The Author Card/Box is a special section that appears on the author page and on single post pages. We designed it to allow your authors to present themselves in an elegant way.
On the single post page, the author card/box displays the following types of information: avatar, link to personal blog or website, author’s name, biographical info, social links.
On the author page, this section also displays the number of the articles and comments posted by the author.
You can add an avatar to your profile in two ways:
- Gravatar – check the official documentation
- WP User Avatar – just install it and the avatar option will appear in Users -> Your Profile
