Cool Author Box Widget for Blogger

Dhiraj Barnwal Friday, 26 April 2013 29 comments


On the request of one of our readers today I am going to show how you can add a cool author bio widget under every post of your blogger blog. This widget is made up of CSS and HTML. No JavaScript is used.

In this widget you can add your Google+, Twitter, Facebook and Feedburners ID so that your blog visitors can contact you easily. Also it has a subscribe email bar beside the social icons. The demo of this author box can be seen by clicking the below button.


Now you have seen the demo follow the below steps to add this author box to your blog.



Adding the CSS

Add the below code just below <head>

<link href='http://files.allbloggertricks.com/Scripts/abt-author-box.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>

Adding the HTML

To add the HTML enter post-footer-line-1 by press Ctrl + F and find <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>

Add the code given just below <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>

NOTE :
You may Find more than 1 <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'> so make sure that you are pasting under the right one. If the author box doesn't work paste the code, under the second tag.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div class='abt-author_info'>
<div class='abt-author_photo'>
<img alt='author' height='150' src='YOUR PIC URL' width='150'/>
</div>
<h2 style='color:#444;font-family:verdana;text-shadow: 3px 3px 3px 3px #ABABAB;'>This Post Was Written By :</h2>
<p>Add information about you here.</p>
<div class='abt-linediv'/>
<div class='abt-email'>
<small style='text-align:center;'>Get Free Email Updates to your Inbox!</small>
<form action='http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify' class='abt-emailform' method='post' onsubmit='window.open(&apos;http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=FeedUsername&apos;, &apos;popupwindow&apos;, &apos;scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520&apos;);return true' target='popupwindow'>
<input name='uri' type='hidden' value='FeedUsername'/>
<input name='loc' type='hidden' value='en_US'/>
<input class='abt-emailinput' name='email' onblur='if (this.value == &quot;&quot;) {this.value = &quot;Enter your email...&quot;;}' onfocus='if (this.value == &quot;Enter your email...&quot;) {this.value = &quot;&quot;}' type='text' value='Enter your email...'/>
 <input class='abt-emailbutton' title='' type='submit' value='SignUp'/>
</form>
</div>
<ul class='abt-social'>
<li class='rssicon'>
<a href='http://feeds.feedburner.com/FeedUsername'>Rss</a>

Hello there, awesome widget.
I'm using it, and have a little problem. The traditional vcard (the name of the author and timestamp of post) is displayin incorrectly. Link: http://www.sabenewsroom.com/2013/09/inflacion-y-cepo-4-alternativas-para.html
Any thoughts as to why?

Hello,

Its a very nice widget, I really liked it. But I don't know why it is not working on my website.
I just don't want to lose it.
Please help.

Thank you so much.. I tried this widget in my blog: http://proweblabsww.blogspot.com. But it is not worked. I did not undertand; where will I put CSS codes in HTML? after "head" or below "head" tag? or after /also other HTML codes? after "div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1" or below "div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1"? please help me about fixing it.. Regards..

I don't think that Author box is required to show, if you are displaying every thing in about us section on your blog. On the other hand I agree it is the way to invite people directly to get connected with Author on his or her social profile.
Although, I didn't try it, but it looks great... Thanks and keep sharing.


Great Post, I love to read articles that are informative and actually have good content.
