Author archive??? (8 posts)

    I created an author archive, but the only link that shows up is the one for admin. None of my other users have a link to call their archives. Do they need to be assigned higher level for this feature. Someone please help...this is kind of time sensitive.
    Thanks a bunch,

    What exactly do you mean by "author archive"?
    By using the <?php wp_list_authors(); ?> tag with the proper parameters you get a list of all authors' name as a link that points to their "archives", i.e. a list of their posts.
    There are other useful tags here:

    That's what I am saying...what would be a reason for the only link being the admins link. None of the other authors show up with a link. Thanks for responding moshu, I'll check out that threat.

    It's working now, but I'm using the tag you listed in combination with <?php the_author_posts_link('nickname'); ?>
    It's working, but do you think it's valid?
    Thanks

    For every template tag page in the Codex there is a section called "Parameters" which says exactly what parameters you can use.
    Why do you need both template tags in your sidebar?

    This is what I am using now...

    <?php wp_list_authors('optioncount=0&show_fullname=0&exclude_admin=0'); ?>

    although I would like to customize the order, it will work for now.
    But now my footer notes have shifted to the right, and I have no idea how that happened. http://trashcast.com if you wanna check it out. All of the content so far is test.
    Thanks for your help.

    It shouldn't be related to the authors... probably a closing div tag missing.
    Try to clean up your code http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http://trashcast.com/ and we will see from there.

    it was the closing div tag. I find that sometimes the theme editor just randomly deletes them. Is this a known issue...have you ever seen it before?
    Thanks
