The Author Summary

You may have noticed that at the bottom of the posts on this site that there is an “About the author” section.

About the author

In the past I’ve been asked how this was done, and the truthful answer is that it is part of the TwentyTen theme and was already there when I installed WordPress 3 for the first time.

The clue is the content is option “Your Profile”, on the sidebar when you are in the WordPress dashboard.

Select Your Profile from the sidebar

It is the “Biographical Info” that provides the text information and the photo is provided by Gravatar using the e-mail address of the user account.

Enter the author information and an e-mail address

This makes the feature really easy to use, and if you are using the TwentyTen theme it does not require any further coding.
