Add Author Avatar Beside Post Title in Blogger

-->

Today I will show you how you can add author image beside the title of every post of your blogger blog. This design hack looks really cool when there are more than one author in a blog. It helps you to distinguish between the authors of the post.

The widget is fully automated so if you change your profile pic then the changes you want will take place. A demo of this plugin can be seen by clicking on the below button.



To add this plugin to your blogger blog. Follow the below steps -

Step 1 : Adding CSS


First go to Blog Title → Template → Edit HTML. Press Ctrl + F. Expand <b:skin>...</b:skin> if it is not expanded. Type ]]></b:skin> in search box and press enter key. [As per the new HTML editor]
Add the below given code just above ]]></b:skin>

.avatar-author{float:left;margin-right:10px;border:0;border-radius:50%;padding:0;width:30px;height:30px}

Step 2 : Adding Script


Find </head> and add the below code just above </head>

<script>
//<![CDATA[
function av(a){var b=a.entry.author[0];c=b.name.$t;d=b.gd$image.src.replace(/\/s[0-9]+(-*c*)\//,'/s30$1/');document.write('<img alt="'+c+'" class="avatar-author" src="'+d+'" title="'+c+'"/>')}
//]]>
</script>


Step 3 : Final Configuration


Finally search for <b:if cond='data:post.title'> and add the below code just above it.
Note : There may be more than 1 <b:if cond='data:post.title'> data card so be sure to add the below code above the correct data card.

<script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/default/&quot; + data:post.id + &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;amp;callback=av&quot;'/>


After adding this code save the template. You are done now. Now you can see rounded author avatar beside every post title in your Blogger blog.
