The Author Archives feature allows you to create a unique index page for each author which will include all posts published by the author and can also have a biography and photo.
If you haven't already invited authors to contribute to your blog, you can do so at Settings > Authors, by entering the name and email for each author, and sending the invitations. The authors will receive an email with a unique link to accept the invite. Learn more.
Please note if you as the Owner are also accepting the invites on behalf of the authors, you'll need to make sure to sign out of the Owner account before clicking the link in the invite.
Enable Author Archives
At Settings > Authors, check the Author Archives box. You won't see this option until at least one author has been added to the blog. Then, you'll have the option to also display the author's profile photo &/or biography by checking the Show Sidebar Photo and Show Sidebar One Line Bio boxes. Click Save Changes to update your blog.
The Author Archives will not be available to enable if one or more authors is using the same Display Name. This is due to how the URL for the author index is created.
To change the Display Name, the author will need to sign in to their own Typepad account, click the Account link, enter a new Display Name, and click Save Changes. Once all authors have unique display names, the Owner will see the option to enable Author Archives at Settings > Authors.
For authors which have the same name, you may want to consider including the initial of the last name in the Display Name. i.e. John S., John M.
Add Author Archives Module to Sidebar
With Author Archives enabled, you can add the links to the author indexes to the sidebar. Go to Design > Content, select Author Module, select Author Archives, and click the Add This Module button. You can drag the module to the preferred location in the sidebar and click Save Changes to update the blog.
