WordPress Author Bio Shortcode v1.2 plugin released

I finally got round to updating this quick-release Author Bio Shortcode plugin. The main changes are background stuff and making sure it’s compatible with the latest version of WordPress (v3.2.1 as I type).

One important feature is that I’ve locked in compatibility only to v3.2.1 and older. If you’re using a version of WordPress prior to 3.2.1 you won’t be able to activate. Upgrade!

Secondly, while the original version only allowed you to place the bio of the current post’s author (i.e. it would print my bio here because I’m the author of this post), you can now specify an author using one of three methods.

Here’s some examples…

Show the current post author’s bio:


Display the author bio of the author with user ID #4:

[author_bio id=”4″]

Display the author bio of the author whose username is ‘bobby’:

[author_bio username=”bobby”]

Display the bio of the author whose e-mail address is me@example.com:

[author_bio email=”me@example.com”]

This is really useful for creating a “team” page on your site.

If you have any questions, comments or feedback, leave them here or on the WordPress.org forums.

If you use it and it works, please leave a rating and mark it as working on it’s WordPress.org plugin page!
