Greetings All -
I am a total and complete newby when it comes to designing a website. This is my very first. I have done very well figuring this out on my own so far, but now I am entering into some more complex functions and have NO clue how to proceed.
I want to use the "Members List" plugin on a couple different pages. The download site for the plugin says I need to have an author.php template in my Themes section. Okay... Research here appears to indicate that I need to create said template, but in order to use/create the author.php template it seems I need to be "In The Loop" or have an index.php template. ??? Now I'm totally and completely lost. Every "help" page just keeps sending me someplace else, and nothing seems to explain how to actually create the template I need. So...
Is there someone out there who can boil this down to s relatively simple, step by step set of instructions on how to create the author.php template? You know, a "go to your themes; click this; type that; press enter; done" type of instructions.
Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help this newby along.
