[resolved] WP2.0 Author Template troubles (2 posts)

    I am setting up my first WordPress website using WordPress 2.0 RC1.

    I have links to author pages being shown in the sidebar. They are working fine. The author pages are properly showing only posts by the selected author.

    I want to be able to have something on top with information about that author taken from the profile. I have been looking at this page:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Author_Templates

    Under the "Custom Author Template" section of that page, there are 3 peices of PHP given to select and retrieve an authors information. Neither of them are working for me.

    I assume that something about the way 2.0 works has changed how I should do this. I could use conditional tags and code all the profiles direcly into the template file, but I would rather it actually gather the information from their user profile.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
