I have seen several discussions on this topic but haven't seen anything that matches what I'm trying to do.
I would like to create a mini bio that gets listed next to the teaser of a post. I have a featured posts block that displays the five most recent posts for a specific content type. I have the image to the left, the teaser text in the middle and I have a column on the right where I have a share button and would like to include a thumbnail of the author, a snippet of their bio and a link back to their author page. I know how to create and display the block, but don't understand how to get the correct author.
I'm using Profile2 to build the author page, and am confident in setting up views to pull in the parts I need from the author's profile. Where I'm stumbling is being able to display the proper author that matches the post displayed. I'm assuming I need to create some sort of argument or relationship, but I'm not familiar with what needs to be included or how to set one up
Thank you ... Scott
