The bottom of every page in the theme can optionally show a short biography of the site author, including a profile picture, email link, and location.
Setting up the author bio
A set of configuration options are used for displaying the biography.
[params] Author = "Author Name" Avatar = "images/site-logo.svg" Biography = "A short description, a few sentences describing the author. Set the 'ShowBio' parameter to false to hide this." ShowBio = true [params.indieWeb] EmailAddress = "email@example.com" Country = "CountryName" City = "CityName"
Specifics on each setting item are as follows:
Author: Your name; this is the site author name.
Avatar: The path to your profile picture. By default, it will show the theme's logo (
Biography: Hopefully the placeholder text here is self-explanatory; add a couple of short sentences about yourself here.
ShowBio: If you prefer not to show the author bio, set this to
false. By default, it's set to
EmailAddress: The email address at which you can be contacted.
Country: The name of the country in which you live.
City: The name of the city in which you live.
The following classes are used to mark up the author bio for IndieWeb parsing:
