    Starbox – the Author Box for Humans

    Add to List

    Humans look at beauty more than anything else (as you most probably already know, men and women alike). That’s why you’ll get an Author Box that’s gorgeous to look at and it makes your readers click all the way through to see more about the Authors.

    Now, if you have just yourself as an Author on your site, or a super-star team of Authors, you’ll love Starbox. You can choose from the professionaly built themes and landscaping. If you are the super-star type, or want to boost social proof, place your Author Box on top of the page, so that your Human readers will know that they’re reading stuff that a real awesome person has written.

    You want the classy, bottom-of-the-page Author Box? You can choose that one as well.

    And if your star Authors want different things, satisfy their needs by allowing them to place their Author Box at the top or bottom, with the default theme, or a better looking one. You can make each of them shine in their own way.

    The Social Profiles of your writers will be obvious and clickable, getting you Humans that will engage with content on your blog and also on your social media streams.

    Because your authors are stars or will be very soon, Google Authorship and Facebook Authorship are here for them with Starbox, and it’s just type->click->boom! to set up. Amazingly easy.

    Are you afraid of having to spend too much time setting Starbox up? Don’t worry. You’re covered by our “For Humans” guarantee. With NO coding or complicated menus whatsoever, you’ll set your Author Box in a matter of minutes. And since we took a lot of care regarding all the coding, it will work well and you won’t have to worry about that.

    You’ll build up some good social proof, you’ll give your Human readers a sense of quality and they’ll be happy to return for more (which will help you with the search engines who track your site).

    If you’re doing the tech stuff on your site or want to know what Starbox’s inner workings are all about, here’s a list:

    • HTML 5
    • Google Microformats (vCard), to display Rich Snippets in google search results
    • Easy to customize for each Author
    • You’ll get Google Authorship on your hands 🙂 For all your authors.
    • Have it work only on blog posts, only on pages, or both!
    • Links to the social media profiles of your authors: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIN, Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr, Youtube, Vimeo
    • Each of your Authors can have a different set of social media profiles added
    • Links to all the articles written by that author
    • A section that displays the latest posts of a certain author
    • Themes to choose from
    • Themes setup for each individual Author, to really make them shine
    • You Can set the Name of the Author
    • You Can set the Job Title of each Author
    • Can set Company (with a link to the company’s site)
    • Each Author can make the Author Box look like it’s her own
    • You can choose not to display it for certain authors
    • Removes any other author box from the page, so that there aren’t duplicates
    • Enables you to upload your own image (so that you won’t need a Gravatar)
    • Paragraphs in the Author Bio to have a better looking text
    • Displays the Author Box in the special pages built for each author.
    • Special Pages for your authors
    • Works even with sites that have woocommerce or other ecommerce plugins
    • Add Starbox in your post’s content or wordpress widgets using the shortcode [starbox] or [starbox id=USER_ID]

    So get your very own Starbox now:

    1. Your Authors will become real Stars
    2. Your readers will notice the persons behind the articles better
    3. It increases your social proof and credibility as an Author
    4. It will increase the subscriber numbers across social media channels
    5. Your readers will feel like they know you better and feel a connection, so they’ll return more often
    6. You know that right now for Google it matters a lot that you have returning visitors (because it means your site is: quality)
    7. You’ll get Google Authorship on your hands 🙂 For all your authors.

    Download it from the WordPress directory and try it out. Having an author box after posts will certainly increase engagement and help your authors grow their authority on the web.
