I want to create an index page listing all of the authors of the blog which would live at example.com/author. Example.com/author/rheimlich works just fine but example.com/author returns a 404.
I know about the template tag wp_list_authors -> http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_authors I just can't get a working page to display at /author.
It should be noted I am using a custom permalink /%category%/%year%/%postname%
I guess I could make a category called 'author' and then create a PHP file for my theme called category-xx.php and make my author index page that way. The problem is this adds unnecessary categories.
Does anyone know of a more elegant solution?
