How to call up author posts outside author.php?

  • 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.
