The Author Bio Widget displays some basic information about the author of the page or post being viewed.

The bio includes the author's gravatar, nickname and bio information as set in the user profile.
The author's name will also link to the main blogroll filtered by content from the same author.

The widget settings include a custom title and a size option for the gravatar ( profile picture ).
