Installed on 1.5. This plugin is easy to use and works perfectly once you have understood that a Contact must be created for each user which is author of an article.
Really what I was looking for.

I like the concept of linking article authors to their bios in Contacts. However,
my installation gave "Written by Elizabeth Hazel" on an article.

Didn't show up in the first 10 minutes maybe due to a caching issue? But worked great after that. So don't give up if it doesn't seem to work as soon as you install it!

This is exactly what I was looking for!!!

I'm working on the scientific site with a piles of articles and ambitious authors in addition ;) And ability to automatically link author's name to the "Our puper-super scientists" category in a "About Center" section is a pure delight. Thanks! :))

The only thing you should admire: some articles are made in co-authorship. So there can be more than one name in the Author field (separated with comma, for instance). Just think about such an improvement. Good luck!

Co-authorship is supported already. Use comma for authors separation.
