i'm trying to get some author profile pages up, and have copied and edited the wp_list_authors() function to create the links to the corresponding pages.
in author.php, i have:
<?php if(get_query_var('author_name')) : $curauth = get_userdatabylogin(get_query_var('author_name')); else : $curauth = get_userdata(get_query_var('author')); endif; ?>
to create $curauth. this is then used to display some simple stuff like the user name and description.
this system works fine, when i use the default permalinks settings; however when i use the 'month and name' permalinks setting, it only seems to link to users who have posts.
i have looked at this thread, but it doesn't really solve the problem (unless i'm missing something!?)
any help greatly appreciated,
