Author Avatar Shortcode

The [molongui_author_avatar] shortcode allows you to display the avatar for the current post author or for any author you indicate. Really handy shortcode when building a custom page.

For multi-authored posts, use the [post_avatars] shortcode instead.


Post Avatars Shortcode

The [post_avatars] shortcode is meant for multi-authored posts —a post with multiple contributors— but it works on single-authored posts as well. It allows you to display the avatars for all the post authors.

This might be specially useful when you want to display the avatars in your post byline.


Why Molongui Authorship for Local Avatars?
