Author Bio in Spectrum Theme

    Is it possible to add a small author bio box at the bottom of each post when using the Spectrum theme?

    I have seen this in a number of other themes and would like to add it to the one I am currently using as our blog will have a number of authors. I have tried filling in the about me box as some other users have suggested in other forum posts, but these may have been specific to other themes.

    The blog I need help with is englishlakesblog.wordpress.com.

  2. The profile info shows up in some themes only - see here:

    I would suggest you create a page with all the author bios.

  3. May I suggest that you may find the information in this article to be helpful as well?
    Multi-Author WordPress.com Blogs

    Also in case you missed it there has been a change made by the Theme Team to the display of Author bylines on WordPress.com free hosted blogs.

    Our most popular themes now have better comment labeling when comments are turned off and better author highlighting for multiple author blogs — making them perfect for blogs that are more like small business sites or magazines. http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/theme-improvements/

    There's a workaround for single Author bloggers who do wish to have a byline display on their posts found here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/01/03/wordpress-com-changes-bylines-for-authors/
