    Hi everybody,

    I'm new to WordPress and I want to ask a question about a plugin that creates author pages in which there is a "description" about the author and the posts that he published. Can you please suggest me one? And explain how to use it? (for "dummies":)

    Thanks a lot.

    There is no need for a plugin, since WP recognizes author.php as one of its own templates.
    There are also lots of good articles about using templates: http://codex.wordpress.org/Templates

    OK, I understood the author.php thing, but I don't know how to get the author's name, posts and description text in the author page. Can you help?

    See the section Author Tags on this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags

    There is also a similar thread with some very good suggestions:

    Thanks again, and one last question: Is there any way I can use these tags outside the Loop?

    (OK, I got the answer:)
