I have a multi-author blog, The Israel Situation, that I want to jazz up a bit. My author page is a bit dull and I have to update everything myself. I am looking to add a contributor page more like the one here at Wise Bread.
Any ideas on how to do that? I want author profile to link to that page so the authors can update their profile whenever they like and have the details flow through without any updates.
Here’s an excellent article on how to code a custom page template for this purpose. http://bavotasan.com/2009/how-to-display-an-author-list-with-avatars-in-wordpress/
And here’s the code which you might need to refer to from the WordPress Codex. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_list_authors
Let me know if you need any help.
Another option would be to create custom widgets and try using one of these plugins:
