How to Setup Gabfire About Widget
After activating the widget in Appearance > Gabfire Widget Pack, simply drag the Gabfire About widget instance to the widget zone of your choice. Then, you’ll be able to setup a few options that this widget has to offer.
Title – This field will display text, including HTML, in an <h3> tag above the widget instance.
Site Admin’s Avatar – If the email address linked to the site admin (Settings > General) is a registered Gravatar email, the widget will fetch the avatar (50×50) and display it left aligned, inline to the text. Disable this if the site admin email is not linked to Gravatar.
About Text – This field will display the body of text, including HTML, for the Gabfire About widget.
URL to Display a Custom Image – This field allows you to include a separate image if you do not wish to use the Site Admin’s Avatar. The image will take on it’s original size to the max-width of the widget itself, so make sure to choose an appropriately sized image. Leaving this blank will disable the image.
If a Custom Image Defined – Align Image – This dropdown allows you to select the alignment of your custom image. Both left and right alignment will display the image inline with the text, while the center alignment will push all body content below it.
Post or Page ID for link – The Gabfire About widget includes the ability to add a button to the bottom-right of the instance. This field will only accept post or page ID values for internal linking.
Link Label – This field is the actual text of the link. You’ll need both the label and the page id to activate the button.
