Support » Themes and Templates » How to call up author posts outside author.php?
7 years, 5 months ago
I’d like to make an additional author page with much different formatting that only lists the author’s posts with no header and no sidebar.
Is there a way to make a call to a separate author template (in addition to the existing one)?
Thanks for any suggestions.
Create a new custom template based on author.php. Call the file something like author-list.php and give it a template name of “Author Post List”.
Create a new page using your new custom template.
How could I call up this template?
As is, using the_author_posts_link brings up the standard author.php.
Thank you for your help on this.
BTW: I can create a page with a author-list.php template, but I’m unclear how to dynamically call an author’s information into that page.
I found a solution by using a special author category plugin and then creating a special theme for that category.
It’s a bit of a kluge. So I’m open to better ideas.
