Author Attributes--outside the loop (2 posts)

    I'm wondering if anyone has written a plugin/hack that allows loopless access to author attributes like the description, email, etc. If there hasn't been one, I'd write one if there's interest. I think that rather than having to make performance-taxing calls to the loop for every individual author, a straight-up access to the users table would make more sense in several cases.

    I've been expecting get_author_[attribute] functions to be added into the code base for several releases, but it just isn't happening.

    Let me know!

    did you find any answers yet.

    I used a query_posts() to get the info into a function im using as a widget but I dont want to use query_posts(), it seems a little over kill.
