Custom About Author WordPress Plugin
Would you like display a unique author bio on a per post author or an a post basis? To make things more simpler, lets say a content writer submits an article for your blog and the writer wants to display a link pointing to his/her clients website and the same writer then submits another article with a different link in the author biography.So this means the writer wants a different author bio each time he or she submits a new article. Ideally the WordPress author bio section in user profile is static, It can’t display a different bio for the same user on all of his/ her posts . If you want to make it possible the traditional way,then you need to ask the user to register with a different username and it would be a hectic task for the user or the other way to do is to add a author bio manually at the post footer but that won’t look professional. The author won’t get the benefit of the customer author box.
To be very frank,Even I faced the same problem and as i had mentioned in my about me page that ” If i’m stuck on a problem, I keep researching on it and if I succeed in resolving it, then you may find an article about the same on BleepingTech” . That’s how i published “Engadget Style Popular Posts Plugin For WordPress” . So I’m really happy to publish this post and i think it would benefit other WordPress bloggers
