I searched Google and the forums before posting this; having found nothing I'm now worried that this is a complicated issue. Regardless, I want to try to tackle it if I can. Maybe I'm just using the wrong keywords.
Starting out, I intended to provide a list of users in the sidebar that displayed their gravatar and how many posts they had made, since it is a multi-author blog. I found a plugin that had been slightly outdated and, when it didn't work, I simply uninstalled it and looked for another to accomplish the job. The original plugin I installed said that it could not find any users.
I then came across the the GD Simple Widgets (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gd-simple-widgets/) and installed it. After setting up the blog authors widget, the system returned a blank list.
I have around 10 users setup, two of which are admins and the rest are set to author. I've double-checked the settings in gdSW Post Authors and everything should be set correctly. It's still not displaying any users.
Any ideas of where to start? Thanks guys.
I'm running WP 2.8.4.
