    I've searched high and low but can't seem to find a plugin that will put author gravatar and bio in a sidebar widget. There are dozens of these for WP, but nothing I've been able to find that's MU compatible. If anybody's got something that's working for them, I'd love to get a hold of it.

    Suggestions quite welcome! Thanks!

    I find it hard to believe that they're not WPMU compatible - its not like they really should be doing anything "odd" that makes them non compliant.

    Have you considered finding one you like and then fixing it?

    Have you even tried the ones that are available?

    The problem I found was that many of the available plugins that do this have a bunch of options that have to be set in order for the plugin to work and quite a few wouldn't even auto-activate if they were placed in the mu-plugins folder. I ended up having to tear apart an existing plugin and pull only the most basic parts out. I added that to my functions file instead of adding it as a plugin.
