    I have the newest version. of wp. What I want to do is build the bio into to display in the rss. So when the author writes a story and part of it displays in rss I want the bio to display too. I willing to pay or work something out to the first person that can help me out. I am not sure what files to edit or maybe if someone knows of another plugin out there.

    Well if you;re running regular wordpress, you actually should be be over at http://wordpress.org/support/

    Be sure to give the actual version you;re running though as the latest released version is the 3.0 beta and I have this feeling that you;re not running that. (Most techs pull out their hair when they read that and the mathematician in me always wants to know where the number "latest" is along the counting chart.)

    There are author bio plugins for post content. Not sure if they work for rss feeds but you may want to review them.

    Example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/author-bio/

    What i am trying to do is embed the code to another website. On the other website I a box to display with the users bio picture title of the blog and part of the blog story. I want it to update automatically. I already have it where it pulls in the stories automatically with the date name etc.. I just need it to pull in the bio and a picture..

    This explains it better. I have a rss box on another website. The website is in html. What I want to do is also display the authors bio and authors picture too. Sorry my english isn't the best. I already got the title part of the story and date to appear. I am using java script. I was wondering what i have to do.. edit the java and rss or just edit the java to bring in the picture and bio.

    Yes I saw what it does.. But it doesn't do what I need. I need a display box on another site where it shows the authors image and bio.. After doing more research it looks like I need some type of java that grabs the bio and authors picture and and posts them right in the box next to the story.

    Sure it does.

    you;re pulling posts from one site to another, correct?
    And on the other site, you want information form the feed footer to display.

    Right.

    The plugin above places whatever you want in your feed footer. including php. With which you can pull your author bio info.

    Hi everyone.

    I try to aggregate all my mu blogs into one RSS feed. It works sort of with sitewide tags and pulling the feed from the aggregated blog. Problem is I canĀ“t get the individual blog names to show in the feed. So it looks like all the posts are coming from one blog (the aggregated sitewide blog) and thats not good.

    Thanks for help on this one.
