Options galore for Author Bio Shortcode plugin

My Author Bio Shortcode WordPress plugin has received a substantial update today, adding a bunch of new options.

Thanks to some helpful and constructive criticism from Richard Tubb about my blog I’ve been making a few updates including wanting to put a bio below each post, which reminded me I already had a handle little tool for that! Not satisfied that it only printed out the bio, I wanted to add my avatar and also some wrapper HTML to make styling the whole thing a little easier.

Version 2.0 of Author Bio Shortcode now does that. If you want to use it, or upgrade, I’d suggesting checking out the usage instructions at the WordPress.org plugin repository to see the fine detail. You can also see it in action at the bottom of this post!

Enjoy!

Update! Based on Nara’s comments I’ve just added some name parameters too, so that you can add the author’s name as well as bio.
