Use the authorbox to provide attribution to the author of a post or page.
Note: if the
URL key is set in the author’s data file, the
<a> tag linking to the URL will have the
rel="author" attribute set on it.
The author for authorboxes can be set sitewide and/or specific to each page.
To enable authorboxes, set
params in the site configuration file.
Set Site Author
To set a default author to be used on a post if authorboxes are enabled and an author isn’t set for the page, add a line under
author to the value under
Name in the author’s data file:
Set Page Author
Someone other than the default author has authored a post for the site and you’d like to set them as the author of just that one page. You can do so by setting the value of
author in that page’s front matter.
The below examples use “Joe Smith” as the post’s author.
You can also disable the authorbox for a particular page by setting
true in the page’s front matter.
