Author Name Block

Short url:

The Author Name Block will display the author name for the current Post/ Page. Although you can add this block into your normal Page or Post content, it will be more useful adding it to your theme’s templates using the Full Site Editor.

The Post Author name is typically seen at either the top or bottom of Single Posts or Pages and allows you to provide further information to your readers in regards to who authored that particular page of content.

Once you've added the block, there are further options available in the Settings Sidebar. Using the Link to author archive switch you can automatically add a link to the author name that will link to the author archive page. If this option is turned on, you can also elect to open that author archive page in a new browser tab.

You can also change the Text and Background colours, as well as change various Typography settings like Font size, Appearance, Decoration, Line height, Letter case & Letter spacing. The Dimensions panels also allows you to specify the padding around the block.

The various options for this block are located within separate Settings () and Styles () tabs, in the Settings Sidebar.
