Why Add an Author Info Box in WordPress?
By default, most WordPress themes will display the author’s name on a blog post but no other information about them.
Showing the actual person behind the content helps build credibility with your readers and can strengthen your site’s authority.
While an ‘About Me’ page can help, not every reader will take the time to visit it. Plus, if you have a multi-author WordPress site, then an author box can be useful to your readers who want to know more about the author behind each post.
Author boxes also provides authors an additional incentive to contribute more often and interact with readers, since they can share their own website and social media links to build their followers.
If you want more users to submit content to your website, then an author info box is a great way to attract writers looking for exposure and new audiences.
With that said, let’s show you how to add an author info box in WordPress. Simply use the quick links below to jump straight to the method you want to use.
