    Hi, I just set the software up and its pretty good. I have a team of engineers who will be blogging on the site each as a different user. I'd like to have an aggragate blog with all entries/posts and quick links on the main page to look at all posts by user. I can do this if I create a category per each user, but that means all of my users must be good about choosing the category.

    Is it possible to do this? I looked for themes that implemented this and through the PHP for a creator filter tag but found none.

    If someone could point me to the right place to look, I'd be much obliged...

    Thanks

    Have you seen the Template_Tags/wp_list_authors tag and the related (and linked from there) list_authors?

    Excellent, that is just want I wanted. I editred the sidebar part of the default template and added this right before categories:

  4. <h2>Authors</h2>
      <?php wp_list_authors('sort_column=name&optioncount=1&hierarchical=0'); ?>
  5. voila, I had a list of authors. Thanks for the help.

    By the way the mailing list as blog with RSS feeds for each conversation is so very cool. I have questions in to the svn users list and the maven users list. Hunting for the replies is quite a major pain. Finding this reply was just one little click on my sage links.

    As I have been reading up on RSS and Atom I have hard time figuring out why it was so great (I hoped it would make sense later). Ok, it just made send to me. RSS and atom are wonderous...

    Thanks again.
