    I know that this might be a bit complex, but if anyone can help, the help is greatly appreciated. I am looking for a plugin that upon the creation of a new user, it creates a new category as well as a new page. But it also would link the page and category together (posts to that category would be found under the page). I have been able to do this manually, but with approximately 30 users, the coding becomes time consuming. Thanks again for the help anyone can provide!!

    I'm not exactly sure what you're looking to accomplish here. It's not really necessary to have a dedicated category for each user. You can already use "archive views" queried by author by appending:

    ?author=[ID]

    to the URL, example: http://jaredquinn.info?author=1

    You can also use the function "wp_list_authors" (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_authors) to generate a list of all authors as links to the individual author archive pages.

    What are you wanting to display once you have the page and cat created?

    If your just wanting to display user info then i would just create a single page and pull out there data thru the ID being passed.

    I do this on http://www.mEm-Gaming.co.uk and many other sites. I do have a little PluginClass system created for this but its a bit too messy to release

    What I am attempting to do is create a homework blog for my school. When teachers create an account, I want a category to be created for them as well as a page. Ideally, the author page and category would appear on the same page using and if statement on the Page Template file. If listing the authors with the code mentioned above also lists the pages they have create, that would be ideal. If you have any ideas, I am open. Thanks for the help!
