List Authors Widget


This plugin makes a widget available which lists the authors on your blog.


Install this plugin in the usual way, by downloading and unzipping the folder into your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins).

The plugin then needs to be activated before it can be used.

To use, simply drag the ‘Authors’ widget into a sidebar. To use the widget, your theme must be widget-enabled.


Still good

Nice and simple. Still working perfectly.

I’ve edited line 24 of the plugin code to add ” ORDER BY display_name ASC”:
$authors = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT ID from $wpdb->users ORDER BY display_name ASC;") ;

Now the widget lists by name rather than ID for a better listing experience!
