September 5, 2011

Most of you must be liking our new Author Box, and like to have the same in your blog too. So I will help you to create the Author Box in two simple steps. Thanks to BloggerFolder for this tutorial. I just have customized it a bit to my need.

Author Box

[sws_blue_box box_size="615"] First Step [/sws_blue_box]

Go to Thesis > Custom File Editor, and add the below CSS code at the end of custom.css.

[sws_code language="css"] [/sws_code]

Click “Save” button to save the changes.

[sws_yellow_box box_size="615"] Second Step [/sws_yellow_box]

Go to Appearance > Thesis OpenHook. If you don’t have Thesis OpenHook installed, you can install it from here. Go to “After Post” Box and paste the following code there and Tick on “Execute PHP on this hook“.
<div id="author-bio">
<?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_id() , 80 ); ?>
<h4>Article by <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?></h4>
<p><?php the_author_description(); ?></p>
<p>We use The Thesis Theme for WordPress, which is the best SEO theme framework around the net. Google will love you for this.</p>
<p><a title="Download Thesis" href="" target="_blank">Download Thesis !</a></p>

You can change the above code according to your need. After this press “Save” button and voila, you are done. Check your cool Author Box.

Ashish, do you feel all the social icons present under the posts are valuable one’s i think some of them are just of waste. Your opinion??

Yup, many of them are waste, but still might be one or two of 1000′s visitors may need them.
