    I have a blog at http://studblogg.uib.no , which have five bloggers. I've made a plugin that displays an image of the author next to the blogpost title, but I am not able to make a page that lists ALL the authors. What I need is something like this: http://www.dkpto.dk/weblog/skribenter.asp

    I've made a page authors.php in my template directory, but I don't know how to link to it (guess this is the wordpress template hierarchy, but the example of Snarfer
    is not understandable for me. Main problem - don't know how to call it.

    My authors.php page I tried to call with http://<myurl>/?page=authors, but this displays the index.php

    Anybody who could help me out here?
    I'd be forever grateful!

    This was originally posted in themes and templates, but I figured that was wrong formum and reposted here...

    Look at how to go about setting up a custom Page template, etc.:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates

    And I've actually created and made public a Page template for displaying *all* authors (or all authors and contribuors, or whatever):

    Thanks alot, but from the page codex page I still can't figure out how to call the page.

    I've tried to link to <myurl>/?page=author, but the posts.php keep showing.

    So the problem is not to put content to the page, but how to call it.

    Try:

    /?pagename=author

    Assuming 'author' is the nicename or page slug for this Page.
