WordPress 3.0 Specific Author Templates

WordPress 3.0 Author TemplateIn WordPress 3.0 it will be possible to use specific author templates. The function get_author_template() has been expanded in wp-includes/theme.php.

Now you can create a author-michael.php or author-123.php, which will be called via the WordPress Template Hierarchy in connection to the author with user_nicename michael or ID 123. Basically the same funtionality as we known for categories.
