Although there are a few other plugins out there that allow you to create author bio variations for each multisite instance, none offer the simplicity that Multisite Author Bio does.

Gone are the days of having to manually switch between sites in your network to update or view the user’s biographical information. With Multisite Author Bio you can view and update all of the different variations of the author bio from the same user edit page.

For instance, let’s say you have 10 sites in you network and you are currently in the WP Admin and you want to create a variation of the author bio for a user on each site. Instead of having to open up a new window or tab to update the bio for each site you can do it all from the user’s edit page from the site. This saves time and saving time is always a plus.

Once, installed and activated the plugin is ready to rock and roll. No additional configuration is necessary.


Although installing and activating the plugin won’t affect a normal website, Multisite Author Bio is meant to work on a Multisite network and, thus, does not benefit you unless you have multisite enabled.

Please keep in mind that the options added to the database are not removed on uninstall by default in order to preserve data. If you would like to clear all data added by the plugin you can go to the plugin’s settings page and check Clear translation data on uninstall.

For Developers

The data is stored in the main network’s site database to limit the amount of data created by the plugin.
mab_clear_data is stored in wp_options and determines whether the plugin’s data should be removed on uninstall.
mab_profile_bio_[site_name] is stored in wp_usermeta and is the author bio variant for [site_name].

Multisite Author Bio uses the to get_the_author_user_description filter to update the author bio for each network site. If an author bio variation is not present for a specific site it will use the default author biographical information from the main network site.
