Improvements include a revised options screen (uses checkbox input fields instead of free text where appropriate) and the ability to include links to authors’ RSS feeds. If you find it useful, please leave a comment. Thanks!

    Hi Gene,
    An update will be released in a couple of days with full compatibility with WP 2.8.

  • Gene July 5, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    Nope, a few bugs in 2.8

  • Gene July 5, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Answered my own question, tried it and seems to work well.

    Interesting plugin, is it compatible with WP 2.8?

    Thanks,

    Hi David,

    I think your best bet is to use the built-in function wp_list_authors directly on the page. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_authors for usage. My plugin makes use of that function, providing the code for using it as a widget but you could simply hardcode the options you like.

    Hi, great plugin! Is there a way to get this plugin to work on a page instead of in a widget? I have a blog that will have many authors, and I thought it might be useful for that. I know how to enable PHP on pages. Thanks in advance.

    I ended up just using a table to display what I needed. I think that is the best option because I am not sure I would of been able to setup the feedburner feeds.

    Still a nice plugin, keep up the good work.

    Hi,

    Nice widget. I have a quick question.
    Is there anyway to manually insert the widget into the sidebar? I am not sure how to use both widgets and manual code at the same time.

    This is probably a long shot, but the widget looked relatively simple so I thought Id ask.

    Thanks.

    @Josh Nankivel
    Hi Josh,

    The WordPress function that my plugin uses doesn’t allow any functionality beyond what it has already. If I have some free time I’ll consider writing my own function to allow author sorting.

  • Josh Nankivel January 31, 2009 at 3:30 pm

    Could you write this plugin with the option to sort authors by (1) post count or (2) in order of most recent post?

    A query like this would order by most recent post. I’m OK with querying the db but not so much with php…

    ‘SELECT display_name, LEFT( MAX( post_date ) , 10 ) FROM wp_users JOIN (wp_posts) ON ( wp_users.ID = wp_posts.post_author ) GROUP BY display_name ORDER BY MAX( post_date ) DESC’

    Hi,

    Is it possible to upgrade List Authors widget to work with WordPress 2.7. as well?

    Best Regards

      Hi Matej,

      I have tested the List Authors widget and it works well with WordPress 2.7. I will make sure to update the details to reflect that.
