I am using WordPress 2.0 RC1 and developing my first WordPress site. Thanks in advance for any help.
In my sidebar I have a list of all authors, and clicking on one of them properly brings up domain.com/archive/author/xyz/. However, at the top of the list of their posts, I want to have a blurb about them. At first I was going to pull the information from the user profile, but none of the methods to do so in the Author Templates section of the Codex seem to work in 2.0. I tried posting about that:
But no is responding. So I thought, screw it, I'll just use is_author() and code the profiles directly into the template. Here is my problem though. While is_author() is working, I can't pass it any parameters. According to the Conditional Tags page in the Codex, I can pass it the author number, nickname, or nicename. But none of those are working. It only works if I use no parameters.
Was the functioning of is_author() changed in 2.0? Is this perhaps a bug? Help?
