Dynamic wp authors page

  • # August 30, 2009 at 12:36 am

    I know about the author template codex, but I’m looking for a way to create a page that will list staff, bios, and images… DYNAMICALLY!
    Meaning, editable and it will have the ability to update automatically as users change.

    Any ideas?

    You want to make a Page template which lists authors , with author description and images/gravatar ?

    btw: Theres lots of plugins which may do some of what you want, and that has code you may reuse in a Page template: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/author/

    I think http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_userdata could help you.

    I’ll give the userdata a shot… will this list all of the users?

    At the top of this page: http://www.ericdmunoz.com/dhe/author/admin/, you can see that I have a box w/ the user name, pic, and bio (this is in a testing phase).
    I would like to be able to repeat this, if at all possible.
    Like I said, I’ll try the userdata and see how that goes.

    Not much luck. I just gives me 1 user at a time.
    Any idea on how to have it generate all of the users at one time?

    I’m looking for something like this: http://www.viget.com/about/team/

    Ok, it looks like the 2nd one would work.
    I’m not very good w/ php, but what I can tell is that it has an multi-author loop that I can add bio info via the backend.

    I’m a teacher full-time so I have to do grading today and I’ll try it this week and I’ll let you guys know how it goes. :D

    Hopefully, it works.

    Ok!! I found something that works!!!
    http://guff.szub.net/source/page-authors.php

    I have 1 problem. There’s no link to individual profiles.
    Here’s the line in which I want to link up to the individual profile:

    Code:

    Code:
    < ?php echo $user->user_firstname; ?> < ?php echo $user->user_lastname; ?>

    to a personal profile?
    By profile I mean the default author.php page.
