Managing Multiple Authors: Customizing the WordPress Author Page | Lorelle on WordPress

The author page in WordPress is generated automatically, featuring the author’s name in the link and the page title, followed by an archive listing of their posts in reverse chronology. While this serves the purposes of most sites, if you truly want to feature your author as a vital contributor, consider adding a few more features.

An author page can feature custom content such as:

    The author bio.
    Author photograph/Gravatar.
    Twitter address.
    Facebook address.
    LinkedIn address.
    Twitter stream.
    Feed stream from their own blog(s).
    Counts of the number of posts.
    Links to a contact page or an actual contact form.
    A list of categories their posts are in.
