I know there are a billion threads about this. I’ve read them all – at least most of them – but I still I can’t figure out how to do this.
What I want is an “about page” that displays the profiles of every author (on the same page). Something that would look like this:
Is there an easy way to achieve this?
I would love you forever if you could help me. I’ve been trying to do this for days but so far no luck.
I know I could create a static page, but I’d like the page to be updated dynamically whenever an author updates their profile.
I installed the get author profil plugin but I don’t know what to do with it once it’s installed.
There is a new article on the WordPress Codex that should be able to take you through the process step by step of creating custom author templates at http://codex.wordpress.org/Author_Templates
I also put together a custom Page template that lists author profiles, etc:
It’ll update automatically when an author edits their profile page.
Thanks to the both of you!
The first solution works but it’s not quite what I want. I’d like to have all the profiles on the same page.
Kafkaesqui, I assume I have to install a plugin such as phpexec so I can run php scripts. Right?
The problem is I get an error message
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/blog/wp-content/plugins/phpexec.php(61) : eval()’d code on line 60″
And I have absolutely no idea of how to fix it. Hence, I don’t even know if your script works.
“Kafkaesqui, I assume I have to install a plugin such as phpexec so I can run php scripts.”
Nope. It’s designed as a Page template, and all you’d need do is save the source to a file within your current theme (say “authors.php”), create a Page (say “Authors”) without any content, and assign the Page template to it. You may need to do a bit of editing to the template to get it to match whatever theme you use (as it’s based on the default (Kubrick)).
