I need to show a view in the sidebar that shows information about the current node's author (Username, picture, email). How do I go about doing this?

  1. Create a view with selecting a type as user.
  2. Add "User:Content authored" relationship.
  3. IN Contextual filters add nid and select the option of "provide default value" and select content Id from URL.


That's it :)

  • Interesting. Thanks that worked. I was going the other way. View as type "content" rather than "user" (same relationship and contextual filter) and it wasn't working. In theory it should work the other way as well, no? – Nigel Waters Dec 18 '12 at 23:43
  • Just tried with other way like view as type "content" and follow the same step and its working. In display i have added the username. – j2r Dec 18 '12 at 23:50
