It's always nice to give the author a little credit for the work they put in to create the content for your blog. In this tutorial, we are going to add an author info/meta box under each post to display content about the author. We will make this author box only appear if the author filled in the description field in their WordPress profile.
I will also show you how to add custom text fields to the WordPress profile page so you can use them for things like social profile links within the author info box. After this tutorial your theme will have an author info box with:
- author avatar
- author name that is linked to their published posts
- author description
- social links that use Font Awesome
