Enhance your articles with the Author Info Box plugin, a dynamic feature that allows you to display essential information about the author either above or below an article. This plugin conveniently presents details such as the author's name, avatar image, website, email address, and brief biography.
The plugin's flexibility allows you to customize which information to display, with the ability to source data from various profiles, including the default Joomla! User-Profile plugin, JomSocial, Kunena, and the Author List profile. Depending on your preference, the author's image can be retrieved from the Gravatar service (gravatar.com) or the profiles mentioned above.
Furthermore, this plugin allows you to link directly to the author's JomSocial, Kunena, or Author List profiles, enriching the reader's ability to explore more about the author.
You have full control over when and where the Author Info Box is displayed. Its appearance can be limited to the article view and manipulated via four different ID assignments (author ID, article ID, category ID, and item ID).
The visual output is entirely driven by an included CSS file, allowing you to easily tailor the look of the box to match your existing website template. With this plugin, you can provide a more immersive, informative reading experience by showcasing your authors in an elegant, personalized manner.
