Authors Widget shows the list of the authors, with the number of posts, link to RSS feed next to their name. It is useful in a multi-author blog, where you want to have the list in the sidemenu.
- Download the latest version
- Upload `authors.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Go to ‘Appearance’ or ‘Presentation’ or ‘Design’ menu
- Go to ‘Widgets’ menu
- Drag & Drop the Authors Widget to the place you would like to display the authors’ list
- Optionally change the title
This is how the sidemenu will look:
Drag & Drop the widget to it’s place and change the title:

Oh, nevermind! I just found it, even easier than I imagined!
I can’t figure out where the exclude list goes, I’ve tried adding username and id with no luck. Where do I put the info on an author I want to exclude? Thanks for your help.
So how do youi do that ? when I put a user name in the exculde Box, then it remove every contributors from the widget …
You need to put the comma-separated list of ID-s in the users table.
My authors are showing up tabbed instead of in a straight line. How can I fix that? Thanks.
I noticed it’s only when I use the avatars, but I would like to use the avatars and have them lined up in a straight line. I’m assuming there’s some bit of code that just needs to be altered?
It could be some css issue with your theme. It works on my site for example, without any additional code.
So any suggestion on how to override the theme settings?
Do you mean something like Gavriel
? The links of Authors Plugin go to the actual author pages. I use for example profile-pic
, but I’m sure there are more plugins that help you customizing the author’s bio page.
I love your plugin. A quick question: Do you know if/how can I change the link when you press an author’s name? right now WordPress sends me to an Archive page, but I want to create a page for each author with his/her bio and picture, including some of his posts. Any idea?
Please bare in mind that I am not a programer so if you can provide an explanation please make sure it is very very detailed and specific
Hi Gavriel thanks for the plugin really useful!
Is there any way I can add a twitter link to the list of Authors?
