    The author bio box looks cool.
    Also I noticed that the comment fields didn’t appear and in place of that my name appears. Thats super cool. Thats a major incentive to comment. How did you do that?

    I agree with Selurus, author box looks cool. I do not have one on my blog but should get one. I think I will see if a plugin will work but if not thanks for the coding tutorial, it will come in handy if I need to go there.

      Hi Onibalusi,

      Yes there are several different plugins you can use. You can find them by doing a search through the admin panel> install new plugins > and do a author bio box search. Just a reminder, these plugin are very limited and may not work and are not as highly customizable as doing it yourself. Plus if you code it yourself, your site will load faster than runing it at as a plugin.

    What I meant to say was the first comment I posted required me to enter name, email and url. But that didn’t appear while posting the 2nd comment.
    Instead a message is displayed Welcome back, Selurus. Change>>
    Why?

      O I understand what your saying now. I that should be part of intense debate comment plugin. When I comment on some of the other intense debate sites I see this same message. Are you using intense debate on your site?

    Hello? You’ve not replied to my question. I would really like to implement this on my blog too if you’d tell me how you do it.

      Hi Arshad,

      I had a lot of issues with one of my themes as well. A buddy and I had to go in and play with the code until we found the right look and feel. You will have to go in and edit the code to match your theme.

    Great tut , I shall be referring users of the WP Platform to this article . Good clean code :) I had recently written an article on How to Implement an Authors Box for the Blogger Platform .
    On the Blogger platform , one cannot install anything via a plugin – the codes must be installed manually . I had styled a few Author Boxes , since everyone liked my own and kept requesting of me to post a tut on how to go abut creating one – so… I just created a few myself for readers to use. Now I'm being asked to write up a tut on how to install them on the WP Platform. However, I will now simply point users wishing to implement them here to your Tut ! :D ( Hopefully I will be let off this assignment :D )

    Thank you for your effort in putting this together :)
    Best Regards !

    This is something I’ve been wanting to incorporate into my blogging, but up to now, have not had enough confidence with my ability to edit the php and css.

    With your directions and code inserts, I’m going to give it a shot and see if I can make it work on at least one blog first.

    thanks for providing the step by step

    Didn’t realise this was possible without installing a plugin – I tried a few and they all seemed to be incompatible with WP3 or overkill.

    So thanks!

      Hi, I took a look at one of your articles. It looks like the whole author box is off. This actually a different theme from mine. Digital Nature offers two themes right now, yours and mine.

      You have two options to fix this.
      1. The easiest to switch to a two column look and that can be done through your theme options, if this theme is offered.

      2. The second option is a lot harder and since I am not familiar with your theme, I can tell how to fix this. But this issue should have been resolved by digital nature. So you might want to ask their support staff as to fix it. If they won’t you will have to dig into the code and change the size of the author box. You will need to open up your editor section via the admin dashboard. Once open, you will need to file for your theme. Since I am not familiar with your theme I can tell you what the name of the file is. Then look for section that is name something like author box or author bio. Then you will see the box size. You will need to change this size.

      I would NOT make these changes without having a developer do it or getting help from digital nature. Any changes to the code you make, before you make those changes, make sure to make a BACKUP of the original file.
