does list_authors() exist in any way? (10 posts)

    Hi,
    How can i create a section on the menu sidebar showing the name of the authors who have posted something in the blog, so that if one clicks on a name he will see all the post from that author?
    I think what i am looking for is something like the list_cat() tag, but for authors. Is this possible? Is there a hack for that?
    Thanks,
    Eduardo

    Eduardo,
    Here's the straight poop on the author tags that already exist in the application. Now, how you would toss that together and query the database is beyond me, but someone will hopefully post some suggestions or perhaps a solution.

    You know I wrote this hack a looooooong time ago. In early January to be exact, before everyone else! Bah! No love, no love I tell you!

    The hack by lennart is exactly what i want. But i can't get it to work: i get a parse error in this line (weirdly enough):
    global $tableusers, $tableposts, $wpdb, $author, $siteurl, $blogfilename;
    What can i do about it?
    thanks,
    Eduardo

    I'm about to commit wp_list_authors() to CVS. It'll probably show up in tomorrow's nightly. It's going through code review at the moment.
