1. Amazing! Was searching for something like this for weeks!

  2. @Rish: Glad you found it useful. Thanks for the comment.

  3. When you are using Thesis theme, the best SEO wordpress theme now, it is very easy to do that.

  4. Pure, rockin', goodness. I see these author boxes *everywhere*, and I'm so glad you shared how to integrate them with my theme. It's awesome that it's built into some themes, and it's awesome if there are plugins, but this full control code-integrated technique was perfect for me. Thanks!

  5. Thank you SpiritSentient. As you can see, it's not that hard to create a customized author information box in WordPress

  6. Yeah man! I created one very similar to yours on SpiritSentient immediately after reading your tutorial! So helpful :) (I'll look into customizing it more later :D)

    Thanks again man!

  12. Thanks! After changing themes I realized I had lost my “About The Author” info. With your help, I was able to add that content back and retain my new theme.

    1. @Dene: Glad you liked the information here. Thanks for the comment.

  13. Hi,

    What WP plugin are you using in order to see that Expand profile for above user who commented the article?


    1. If you are referring to the comment system, we are using Disqus on this blog. All this profile expanding/collapsing feature is part of the Disqus commenting system.

  14. Thanks a lot for this, worked out great for me!! The only thing I found that had to be modified was the height that you added to I removed the height and add overflow:hidden so that no matter how much text is added the height will automatically adjust. What do you think of this method? Thanks again for a wonderful tutorial!!!

  15. Thanks Alot Dude =)
    You save my day Man!! This tutorial has everything regarding to what I was looking for

  16. Hi Soumen Halder, first of all I am really happy to find your post which is related to my blogs’ present need. However, I couldn’t found appropriate options in my blog to apply your instructions! So I am requesting you to please help me find out the way. Before I describe my problem you should know that I am not looking for multiple authors profiles on my blog but just only my profile and also I don’t have knowledge on codes! Anyways, here goes my issue:

    1) As you said in the first point, when I tried to fill the form I have found that the form is already set in the correct state. ie:
    Usernames cannot be changed.

    First Name

    Last Name

    Nickname (required)

    Display name publicly as


    The ‘Bio’ and Website details were also filled. Then I had tried following your instructions from second point.

    2) Here, I had clicked the ‘Editor’ link under ‘Appearance’ Tab-> Single Post (single.php)->placed the code()given in your second point below this code ie found in the file. Then I inserted rest of the urcodes that are described in your third point below to the div class=”authorbox. 3)Clicked on update file and checked all my dashboard as well as viewe my blogbut found no changes! Well, now here started the mess! I really don’t know if I am doing it in a proper way or not! All this may sound stupid/weird to you but I sincerely needyour assistance in this aspect please!! FYI: http://www.realwebmarket.com/blog is my blog. You can reply to my mail idpdeepu84@gmail.com to further direct contacting.Look forward your help…ThanksPradeep.

  17. Thanks for the turtorial! I used it a few others to make our author box for http://www.MyRealityTech.com

    I still don’t think I’m 100% happy with it, but I HATE playing with code and decided it was good enough for the time being.

  18. Thanks for the tutorial, Soumen. It was exactly what I was looking for.

  19. Can you tell the codes for showing author Username and “Display name”?
