I know how to query the users and create a list of authors and can accomplish this in a page template, much like is described here: Authors Page : A page of authors
my question is then....
is there a way so that i can have www.site.com/author resolve to the page where I am displaying a list of all authors?
I just attempted to create a static page w/ an 'author' slug and it unsurprisingly 404s, I presume b/c WP is expecting something to follow 'author' and nothing is.
Do I create an endpoint (rewrite stuff is still complex for me) or can I intercept the template_redirection and send it to my custom page? Any push in the right direction would be most appreciated.
