I want to give users the option to rate authors on my blog. By rating I mean that they are able to write a comment as well as give each author 0-5 Stars (or so).
I initially had planned to simply add the default comments template to the author.php file along with some comments rating plugin but I guess that this is not possible as you can add the comments template only to posts/pages.
Does anyone has another idea how to achieve that?
Giving each author an actual page will not work as I hope to have many authors at one point and I do not want to manually create a page for each one of them. I read something about an assigned hidden post that is linked to each author but I didn't really get it.
I also thought about achieving it by using the GD Star Rating Plugin but ... well ... lets say, this plugin is quite complex :) I kind of dont know where do start...
I would appreciate any suggestions and thank you guys in advance!!
