New Plugin: User Profile + Latest Tweets Widget for WordPress



Ever needed to display your user profile on your site, let’s say, your avatar, biography, your tweets and other extra stuff like your Google Maps location or maybe a YouTube video introducing you or your business? Then this User Profile plugin for WordPress was created exactly for you!

Overview of About Me

About Me is a plugin for WordPress that creates a widget to display your user profile and if you have a Twitter account, you can also display your latest tweets from your timeline. It’s perfect to let your users know about who you are and what you’re talking about on Twitter so you can get more followers.

The image on the left shows some of the configurations for the user profile widget that you can achieve just by clicking a couple of widget controls.

You can use it on your sidebars, or even in your post content, using the last tutorial about displaying a sidebar with a shortcode and display it at the end of the article to showcase the author profile.

For businesses

Maybe you don’t want an author profile. Maybe you want to talk about your business. That’s ok, you can also add your sales pitch using the text field which supports full HTML, so you can even display the location of your business by embedding a map from Google Maps or displaying a video from YouTube. The text field also supports WordPress’ shortcodes so you can use them here.

Features of the User Profile widget

The widget controls are shown on the left and these are some of the features:

  • Display your username linked to a custom URL .
  • Show your Gravatar.
  • Introduce yourself with a biography or a quick pitch about your business using the text block with WordPress’ shortcodes and full HTML support.
  • Display your latest tweets (with cache for tweets).
  • Add multiple widget for several user profiles.

The user profile widget is compatible with all browsers (yeah, including IE6) and is up to date with most recent WordPress 3.2 version.
It also includes a settings page to set the avatar size, its horizontal position and for how many minutes your tweets must be cached (entering 0 disables the cache so they are constantly updated).

Get it while it’s hot

The User Profile widget will surely help you to add a face, an identity, to your blog. You can purchase the widget from CodeCanyon:
