Today I am celebrating one year anniversary of Makewebworld. Yes, it has completed its first year and I am really happy with the progress it has made in this year.
Today is another great day, acting as an important milestone for Makewebworld, Its a day when I launched my first WordPress plugin.
Author Box with Different Description – Yes, this is my first plugin and I am selling it at FREE!
I know you would be saying, there are many author box plugin in the market, What’s special in this plugin..
The idea of plugin came from one of my reader who asked for a plugin which can show different author description based on post after reading my post on Best Guest Post System.
I can feel his pain, I also accept Guest post on this blog and sometime I feel author box really ties you down. If I want my authors to come and contribute multiple time, I need to give them more exposure rather than just same description in each post.
I have given him an intermediate solution which can be implemented with some manual coding but this give an birth of creating an author box which gives complete control on author descriptions.
So here is what I have created —>
1. Support for custom description to your post and pages, with the custom field author_desc. Default author description will be picked from user profile but if custom field is there it will display the author description from custom field.
2. Add Facebook, Google, Linkedin, Youtube, Pinterest and Twitter custom fields to User Profile page (URLs are nofollow).
3. Gives you an option to select the user contact fields for the user profiles from admin panel.
4. Remove AOL, Yahoo and Google Talk contact methods from user profile.
5. Select where you want to show the author box, on the top of the page or at bottom.
6. Support for custom CSS, so you can customize your author box display. You can stop loading the Author Box CSS and create a custom tags for your author box.
7. [who has written 100 post] link to the author page with rel=”author”, you just need to link back to the author page on your Google Profile Page to make your authorship information to appear in search results for the content you create.

8. Option to show social media profile as an image or text, you can select it from Admin Panel.
There are still some more stuff which needs to be done for the plugin. below are future enhancement which you can expect.
1. Shortcode to insert Author box, so you can decide the location of it.
2. More flexibility on the design part from the admin panel.
3. Option to choose different layout from the admin panel with some pre-designed template included.
If you want any other enhancement, I have already setup and forum for that. Go ahead and post your enhancement request.
Will there be a charge for the plugin later on,…may be, but if you get it now you will be gaining a lifetime updates for free so you won’t have to pay a penny later on.
