This plugin allows developers to display author names within
wp_list_pages-generated page lists.
After installing and activating, use the parameter
showauthors=1 to display an author name beside each permalinked page title the
wp_list_pages function generates: e.g.,
<?php wp_list_pages( 'title_li=&showauthors=1' ); ?>. To disable the parameter for a particular string/list, set
showauthors to “0”: e.g.,
<?php wp_list_pages( 'title_li=&showauthors=0' ); ?>.

- Developer Notes
This plugin assumes (a) most developers want to drive traffic to site pages, vs. author pages, and (b) links to author pages will appear on these site pages. As such, the names the plugin generates appear unpermalinked.
Additionally, even with the plugin installed and the
showauthors=1parameter enabled,all lists will be organized per pages rather than per authors. Alphabetically ordering a list by ascending
sort_order=ASC&sort_column=post_title) — the default method — will result in a list like the following, regardless of author name:
- John Doe, Title A One Here
- Zach James, Title B Two Here
- Alan Adams, Title C Three Here
As demand warrants, future builds may include these additional functionalities.
