With this theme, you get a custom About Author widget. With this you can upload a photo, add a brief introduction, and then add some personal social networking buttons (not icons).

Setting Up an Author Widget
- Go to Appearance >> Widgets
- Drag a Author Info widget into the sidebar position you want
- Begin filling in the fields. For the image field, you can use the Upload Image button to select a photo from your Media Library or upload a new one. I would recommend an image around 350px in width; height can be what you want.
- Add in the social profile page URL’s for the ones the author has and leave the others empty. For example, your URL would be like:
- Click “Save & Publish“
NOTE – You might notice I have an exclamation mark before the widget title….this is to hide the widget title from the front-end of the site when using the Remove Widget Title plugin. I recommend you try this plugin out if you don’t want a widget title showing but need it for the Admin side.
