Method to manage and list authors

Hi here!

I need to do several things with post authors:

  • give a link to author’s page
  • list last n posts from that author
  • display a short bio of that author in an aside block.

How can I accomplish that? With a Taxonomy?
Thanks by advance.

One idea is to create data with the page URL and bio text.

You could also pull author info from the config.toml.

For listing pages from a certain author, conceptually you enter the author in frontmatter of each post markdown file, then in your template do some range over the pages, grouping by author. Search this forum a bit and you’ll see a lot of relevant posts.

See this thread: Help with author pages

In particular, the solution by RDWatters half way down the thread.

Great! Thanks for your answers. I’ll get into this.
