    How would you display the users profile info on their website?

    Like their image, name, address, and other info that's in their profile.

    Thanks,

    C

    How about this?

    Create a simple user/author list (a widget for example) first.

    <h2>List of authors:</h2>
    <ul>
    <?php wp_list_authors(); ?>
    </ul>

    Then modify the author.php to your liking in the blog's active theme:

    Thanks. Is there a way to post the users info on the page?

    (ie: http://mike.mysite.com)

    I want to display Mike's profile on the pages. Anyone know how to do this?

    dsader, is there a way to display this info in a post rather than in the loop?

    It's all in the loop regardless of which template. If you don't want to specifically use an author template just add the information from dsader's link in your index.php or whatever template you want.

    I don't use the following plugin but it does add profile info to the post like a signature:
