Featured Author

The Featured Author widget is great for showcasing a specific author on your site.  This widget will show all on all pages.


Author Posts

The Author Posts widget will only show on single posts or pages and displays the current author’s other posts.  This is fantastic for keeping viewers on your site because it guides them to read more from their favorite author.


Shortcode Builder


All settings configured in either of the widgets can also be configured in our shortcode builder.  This is a great way for you to add Author Posts to any part of your site.
