Adding an author bio

The Debut Bio feature displays biographical information about an blogger adjacent to their blog or blog entry.

This information is added to an "Author bio" profile that is part of a user's account.


  • Create a new user account if necessary (see Creating user accounts).  Ensure they have at least blogger permission (or a higher level such as contributor, editor or administrator).
  • Or for an existing user, from the "people" user page, select the edit button for the user. Or depending on the permissions set, a user may be able to edit this themselves.
  • You will now see an "Author bio" button at the top of the page.  Clicking on this button will let you add a first and last name as well as a short bio.  Save your changes then return to the main user edit page via the "Account" button.
  • Here you can upload a user picture if you haven't already done so.
  • Save all your changes.
  • The photo, name and bio will now appear in the sidebar for this user's blog and any of their blog entries.
