How to make a page for contributors (8 posts)

    I was wondering if it is possible to create a page with an overview of all the blogger / contributors of the blog?

    Where you can see their username, date that they started blogging, nr of post and a link to all their posts.

    Is there a way to do this or is there a plugin for this?

    Thanks a lot! I was searching for the wrong words. I should have looked for "Author" istead of "Blogger".

    Unfortinatly these author codes only show data from the author that made the post or page. It does not have the ability to show description and additional data from all the authors. Except for <p><?php wp_list_authors('show_fullname=1&optioncount=1&exclude_admin=0'); ?></p> that only desplays name + nr of posts.

    Where you can see their username, date that they started blogging, nr of post and a link to all their posts.

    The template tag, wp_list_authors(), say placed in your theme's sidebar.php will pretty much do that (with the exception of date that they started blogging).

    If you use widgets in your theme, then consider downloading and installing Otto's php code widget.

    Then put this in one of those widgets:

    <?php wp_list_authors('show_fullname=1&optioncount=1'); ?>

    Thank you Michael,

    The wp_list_authors() only shows the name and nr of post. It does not show additional information about all the authors.

    <p>Author's About yourself biography: <?php the_author_description(); ?></p>

    The code above does show additional information, but only for the author of that page, not for all the authors of the blog.

    Author name
    Author URL
    Author description
    Date since bloggin
    Nr of posts
    Link to all the posts
    Author avator

    All the above things can be taken manually from the database for eacht author, but I was hoping that there where tamplate tags, such as wp_list_authors() to do this.

    I don't think there is a quick answer for this and I will just manually take the raw data from the database, for each author.

    Is there any way to use the wp_list_authors tag and have it show all authors names with links to their author pages even if the authors haven't written a post? Right now the tab provides a list of all names, but if the person hasn't written a post, their name doesn't appear as a hyperlink.
