How to Set Up Sharing Buttons + Author Box

Let’s dive a little deeper into single blog posts.

If you’d like to achieve the same look as us, we recommend using the Social Warfare plugin. You can find the free version here and the paid version here*.

We highly recommend the paid version since it offers more customization options (you’ll be able to make it look like the demo!), more social media channels, and the option to select a specific Pinterest image for a blog post. For only $29 per year, it’s well worth it in our opinion.

How to Set Up the Author Box

All your posts can show the author box at the end of it, which is a good place to add a bit more about you and add some extra links if you wish.

  • In the Admin Dashboard, go to Users > All Users.
  • Select your profile (or whichever you want to set up) and click Edit.
  • Under Display name publicly as, select how you want your name to display.
  • Find the box labeled Biographical Info and add your bio!
  • To change your image, you’ll have to do that via Gravatar.

To display the author box, scroll to the Author Archive Settings and check the box with this label: Enable Author Box on this User’s Posts? That will enable the author box for that user. Repeat the same steps for all authors!
