Support » Plugin: Co-Authors Plus » Co-Authors Plus The Vistas theme

  • Resolved primeweb


    Hello there.
    I am using a theme called The Vistas, designed for Real Estate.
    The theme doesn’t have support for more than an agent for each listing. So I searched about plugins and found co-authors-plus. Thanks the authors for the development.
    After installed, I am able to add co-authors to the posts. At least it says in the backend that there is more than an author for the post…
    However, when I am listing all the author posts (frontend), it only shows when he/she is an author, not co-author. I only want to include in the results for a search when the person is author and co-author… nothing else.
    How can I possible do that?
    Thanks for your attention.

  • Having this sample code below, how could I add the co-author information to the args array, in order to also show the posts where an user is also a co-author?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    <?php global $author;
    if(isset($_GET[‘author_name’])) :
    $curauth = get_userdatabylogin($author_name);
    else :
    $curauth = get_userdata(intval($author));

    $blogurl = get_bloginfo(‘template_url’);
    $authid = get_the_author_meta(‘ID’);


    $args = array( ‘paged’ => $paged,’post_type’ => ‘gtre’, ‘posts_per_page’ => $posts_per_page, ‘author’ => $curauth->ID);
    $lastposts = get_posts( $args );
    foreach($lastposts as $post) : setup_postdata($post);

    Every co-author is actually a taxonomy term, so you should be able to do a taxonomy query to get all of their posts.

    Hi Daniel, thanks for your replay.
    I am sorry, could you be a little bit more specific? Like, using an example.. Not a wordpress programmer, sorry about it.

    The documentation I linked to has a good example that should point you in the right direction.

    Yes, thanks for your attention, but that link did not completely helped me, since I am not a skilled programmer. It might be easy for you to see, with your experience, but for me it didn’t tell me a lot… is it possible to include the co-author tag in that args array I have? Does it requires lots of changes?
    Really sorry for bothering with this.
