How To Link WordPress “User” to “Staff Member”

In Total 3.0.8 we added the ability to link a WordPress “user” to a staff member in the Staff post type. This will give you the end user/developer some great room for customizations in your child theme and also allow the theme to make some cool adjustments. In version 3.0.8 the only edits that happen when linking a user to a staff member is that the author bio at the bottom of the post written by such user will pull the avatar, link and title of the linked staff member. But we will look into cool new ways to take advantage of this function in the future!
