Tobias - the author template is a child of the Archive template.

Can you point me to an example of what you are trying to do?

You could try the Meks Smart Author Widget.  I haven;t used it myself but it does look like it will do what you want it to do.

I don't know of any Thesis Box that extracts that kind of information.

The way we do it here relies on using Simple:Press forum functions.

That's what i was looking for... Great.
Will now ask the developper of it, if there is a possibility to publish some extra fields.
But for the moment perfectly ok.

Rick, thanks a lot.

Actually what I should do is create an author meta box similar to my post meta box.
