How to solve issues with MH Author Box widget

Why doesn’t the author box appear below my posts?

The author box will only appear if the author has added some biographical information in the “About You” box. This gives the author control if he wants to display the author box or not.

Gravatar not working in author box

The image is automatically retrieved from Gravatar, it is associated with the email address you are using for your WordPress site, so please ensure that the email addresses you are using for both your blog and Gravatar are matching.

Display author box without setting up a user

The author box simply displays whichever author has been assigned to a particular post, so you do need to have a user account in the system to do this.

Twitter URL is broken

You need to add the full Twitter URL in the field, not just the username.
