• I’m trying to get the repeater and shortcode to work on my authors.php template page. I’m pulling in all the authors information, and some custom fields at the top, then on the bottom i want to show posts associated with that author, with a couple of ad placements.

    I’ve got the shortcode pulling in posts and ads in the correct positions, but it’s pulling in the latest posts, regardless of which author it is.

    I have the Pro version with all add-ons. How can i modify the shortcode so it pulls in only posts for that author i.e info from the $curauth variable?

        The template for displaying Author Archive pages
    get_header(); ?>
    // Set the Current Author Variable $curauth
    $curauth = (isset($_GET['author_name'])) ? get_user_by('slug', $author_name) : get_userdata(intval($author));

                        $size = 'medium'; // (thumbnail, medium, large, full or custom size)
                            if( $image ) {
                                echo wp_get_attachment_image( $image, $size );
                    <a href="<?php the_field('author_linkedin_url' , $curauth); ?>" target="_blank">
