list of authors and their descriptions
Hi, I’d like to include a contributors page, listing all of my authors and their descriptions. Is there a call to get the list of authors, so that I can iterate through it (creating a loop within the main loop)?
I’m using runPHP, so I would do this just on a certain page. Alternately, I could conditionally do this in page.php, I suppose, and put my loop outside the main loop.
Either way, I’m not finding a call that returns the list of authors that I can iterate.
Maybe there’s a plugin that does this?
Forget RunPHP for this. Just check out my All Authors Page template:
Hopefully the template is commented enough throughout to follow the logic and make what modifications you need to it.
(Hmm. Maybe it’s time I wrote up something about this template on my blog…)
Thank you kindly; I will look at this shortly!
This is great; it’s exactly what I’m after. I really appreciate it.
Now, I’m not entirely clear how to integrate this. I know I can edit page.php and have it conditional using the is_page() call. But is there a mechanism to have a certain page use a different template file altogether?
Thanks for helping a newbie along. I’ll gladly RTFM if relevant info exists and you point me to an URL.
Ahem, to repeat: Follow the instructions here (second paragraph) for assigning a (custom) template to a Page.
Ah, sorry, I don’t know how I skimmed over that in your first response. 🙂
Thanks so much for your prompt and relevant help!
