List Site Contributors

Description

List site contributors allows you list your site’s contributors and authors.
Just add the shortcode [listsitecontributors] to a page on your blog.
Optionally you can use the User Photo Plugin (https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-photo/) for images,
otherwise Avatars will be used.

FAQ

What does this do?

This shows a listing of active contributors and authors with images with an A-Z directory and last name search.

What if I do not have the User Photo Plugin?

This will use the User Photo Plugin image, if installed. Otherwise, the WordPress Avatar image will be used.

Where are the options?

Option: Yes/No for showing the web link url for the listed authors/contributors.
Option: Number of characters to limit the authors and contributors descriptions on the search results. Default is 150 chars.

Any other notes?

If the userphoto plugin does not place the photo correctly on the page, trying changing the echo to return in the function userphoto and function userphoto_thumbnail.
If you are logged in as admin, you will see the full descriptions of authors and contributors.
This allows search plugins like Relevanssi to get all that information. Logout to see the normal user view.
Also note that some security plugins can break this plugin due to author id removal.
And remember to backup any style sheet changes you make, before upgrading this plugin.
