Hi WA Family, I have seen by many other a little round profile picture with a little info about the author included in the post. I think this looks good and gain trust by the reader to see your face and know a little about you. I know they can go to the about me page but have it included with al mini version is something I interested to do.

Can anybody pin point me in the right direction how to inculde such thing in my posts. Is it a plug in you use?

Ideally I like my about me page in a side widget as wel on my main page and I have seen it by other that you can see the profile page and a litte stroy but I can work out how to dot it.

I can see how to add a litst of my pages to a side widget but how can I just add my profile picture with some info of me. Do I just do it manual or is there a way do just move my about me page in this position?

Any help is appreciated

Jude

Hello Jude

Some themes have the author bio (picture, description, social media links) widget built in, that you could display in sidebar. There's many plugins that you can use like WP post author and Ultimate Author Box, you can always run a search

I use Extra theme by Divi, author box is built in and display bottom of each post.

Do let me know if you need anything else. Have a nice day.

There should be some plugins for this in Site Manager. I searched on "About Me Widget" and found a few different options for displaying your profile image and descriptions in the sidebar. Make sure they're compatible with your template.

I hope this helps!
Isaiah 😊
