How to Display an Author List with Avatars in WordPress: Redux

WordPress has a built in function to display a list of all of your site’s authors. But there is no option to display their avatars, so all you really get is a text list that links to the author’s page, if you have an author.php file in your theme, that is. I needed to also display the authors’ avatars for a client so I came up with a little piece of code that seems to do the trick.

While working on a client’s website, we realized that the built-in function for listing authors was not enough. We showed you how to display all authors from your site, but that method was only good if you want a simple list to display in your sidebar.

In plain English, WordPress first looks for templates specifically created for individual authors such as author-kevin.php or author-24.php (note: nicename is set to match the corresponding username). If no template has been specifically created for that author, WordPress will display the authors information using the author.php template (which is what we are looking at today). If no author template of any description can be found WordPress defaults to the archive.php template and then the index.php template (if no archive template exists).

Author Image(s) WordPress Plugin displays the author image and bio for each contributor to the blog post. The images are stored on your site’s server in a specific folder with each image named with the author ID or login name. Combined with a multiple author WordPress Plugin, the images are automatically displayed replacing the Gravatar or other author image options. The author image can be linked to a variety of destinations including the author page. This Plugin requires modification of the WordPress Theme. It can also be used to display all the author images on the site on a custom contributor list page.

I’m a little new to WP. How would I go about showing multiple roles? Like the admin and authors? It doesn’t show anything when I try the following:
