  • After </article> copy and paste following codes and configure.

Now : Configure
  • For showing your portrait image, first upload a square size your image to Tinypic Preview your image and get 'Direct Link for Layouts', paste link address on 'your image link' 
  • To configure social media profile, Get your social media profile link and replace at "http://www.facebook.com/your profile" and configure all red marked profile links.
  • In default description, replace your one or just mod the default description
After doing all these, Now hit 'Save template' and check out your Author information box in live action

Template Compatibility
This Author box is compatible with almost all stranded templates but unique designed templates, highly coded templates will not accept this author bio box. It also will not work on Blogger's default Dynamic view templates, because these templates doesn't accept customization. Won't appear on Homepage.

Faq
  • It has no Multi Author variation
So don't forget to mention how working on your Blogger blog, any question feedback leave with comment.
