Image for Author Bio


#1

Do I need a separate plugin to show images for the author bio? Not sure if this is a theme thing or a wordpress thing.

Ideas?

It’s a theme + Gravatar thing. The email address for your blog needs to be the same as the one you’re signed up at Gravatar and it will automatically display in the author bio.

yet again thanks for thw quick response. SO i have gravatar set up but its showing a very small image. Since when I Set the iage up in Gravatar, I am assuming the size is relevent to the theme. Please look at this and tell me if I can make it larger? THANKS!

Yeah, that’s the size it is supposed to be. If you want to change it, you can overwrite the author-bio.php file in your child theme and change this line <?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( ‘user_email’ ), 80 ); ?>. 80 is both the width and height as the image will be a square.
