I want to show Authors Bios for each WordPress 3.0 Multi-site Blog (6 posts)

    Hello everybody,

    I am loving wordpress 3.0 and the network additions. I have a blog with 50 networked sections based on the 50 US states. Each section has a few authors. I want to display the authors bio's in the sidebar for each section. It is important to only show the bio's from that states contributors and no others. I am sure this is possible but all the plugins and hacks I have found so far do not work. Can anyone help point me in the right direction. Thank You All So Much!

  2. Each site in the network is almost the same as a stand-alone blog. you do it the exact same way you would in a single WP blog.

    Thank you for your reply! I really REALLY appriciate your help. I had started to use this method but it does not seem to have the ability to show the author Bio and Profile Pic. Is there a way to add those using this method. I have installed a couple profile picture plugins and they are showing up in their bios. I just want to be able to show this information in the sidebar.

    This would be great and would do exactly what I need... but it does not seem to work in WordPress 3.0. When I try to add an author the drop-down box is empty even though I have three authors for the blog. If I could just get these boxes to populate then this would be perfect. Any suggestions? Thanks.
    I LOVE WORDPRESS 3.0

    For some reason the server I am working on is stopping the widget from populating. I created a vanilla install on another server and the widget worked fine. I created a new vanilla on the main server and it does not populate. Any ideas why this plug-in widget would not work on that specific server.

    Thanks
