If you have Craft Pro, you can access your site’s users from your templates via craft.users. It returns an ElementCriteriaModel object.

{% for author in'authors') %}
    <li><a href="{{ url('authors/' }}">{{ }}</a></li>
{% endfor %}

Parameters #

craft.users supports the following parameters:

admin #

Only fetch admin users. Possible values include '1' and 'not 1'.

{# Fetch all the admins #}
{% set admins = craft.users.admin('1') %}

{# Fetch all the non-admins #}
{% set nonAdmins = craft.users.admin('not 1') %}

can #
