Managing Multiple Authors Over Time

    Some of the authors of my blog will be leaving as authors, and will be replaced in the near future with new authors. I'd like to keep the authors that are leaving as Users so that they can guest post in the future if they'd like to, but I'd like them to not show up in the Authors widget that I'm using. Is there a way to select only some of the authors for the widget, or will I have to end up using a Text widget and some HTML trickery to pull it off?

    The blog I need help with is volunteermaryland.wordpress.com.

  2. All current authors with published posts will show up on the sidebar Authors widget.

    To use the text widget to manually list the author name & avatars, you can view the source of your current page (right-click on the browser window) to find the code, then copy and paste only what you need.

    Thanks naokomc! That's what I figured I'd have to do. Thanks for the tip about using the already existing code. You probably saved me a good day's worth of work.
