Author Cross-Promotion Widget

Display author cross-promotion information in a sidebar or other widget area.

What this Plugin Makes Possible

This widget provides a quick way to display cross-promotion information for a given author on a multi-author blog — for example to promote their posts on another site, mention books they’ve written, and so on. The widget will only appear on posts written by that author.

How it Works

This plugin communicates with WordPress via the usual widget standards:

  • widgets_init
  • WP_Widget

Configuration and Flexibility

The plugin’s simple widget interface can be used to specify the title, a pre-populated cross-promotion, tweak the template for displaying the promotion, and suppress the widget on any arbitrary set of posts by that author.
