Plugin: BP Blog Author Link

    My hubby Ron has released a small plugin for BuddyPress to do something nifty.

    BP Blog Author Link will link to the author’s buddypress member profile instead of the author’s posts page. So if your blog template uses the_author_posts_link(), instead of pulling up more posts from that author on that blog, it goes to their BP profile.

    Enjoy!

    Note that the default home theme for buddypress already links to the member profile. If you are using another theme – awesome!

    Yeah, this’ll do it on any other blog theme. Like member blogs, for example. :D

    Has anyone created code or released a plugin that would combine this functionality with something that will display blog author in a buddypress user’s blog sidebar?

    I poked around the MU forums and found some similar plugins, This one

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile-pic/

    Sounds very close to what I am envisioning.. I am considering testing that plugin, with the one mentioned above in the first post of this thread, and the “blog-defaults” plugin to see if I can get all of my user’s blogs to have a widget auto added in a new default theme that will display their avatar, and a link to their buddypress profile.

    Has anyone does this already and have any advice or code to share?

    I installed BP Blog Author Link this morning before going to work. Works just dandy.

    Thanks Ron!
