Author index? (4 posts)

    I'm looking for a way to have an automatically generated author index on my website (ldsphilosopher.com). I have searched the Install Plugins section and cannot find one anywhere! This seems like a very normal, intuitive feature on a website, so I'm sure I'm not the only person out there who would like to find one.

    Does anyone know where I can get a plugin or widget that will automatically create an index of posts by author?

    If you use the template tag, wp_list_authors(), in your sidebar.php, it will list the blog's authors with each name displayed as a link to that authors posts.

    OK, thank you! Please forgive my ignorance, but where do I cut and paste this text to?

    <?php wp_list_authors('arguments'); ?>

    Right in the body of a post where I want the list to appear? I know it's a dumb question, but I ask because it lets you know how specific the answer might need to be. Thanks!

    Does this solution only provide an author index in a sidebar widget? I'd really like one that's only on one page, my archive page. Is it possible to do that?
