The Author Card is a special section which appears on the author page and the single post page. We designed it to allow your authors to present themselves in an elegant way.
On the single post page, the author card 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 articles and comments posted by the author.
You can add an avatar to your profile in two ways:
- Gravatar, check the official documentation
- a plugin; we use WP User Avatar. Just install it and the avatar option will appear in Users -> Your Profile
