    Hi all,

    I use a function that displays the specific author’s (for a multiple author blog) 5 recent posts – which works fine. However, I would like to also display the featured images of each one of those posts along with the title, but right now it displays the same 5 images of the current page.

    I am using get_the_post_thumbnail to call the image, but can’t figure out how to specify the code. Here is the code:

    function get_related_author_posts() {
        global $authordata, $post;
    
        $authors_posts = get_posts( array( 'author' => $authordata->ID, 'post__not_in' => array( $post->ID ), 'posts_per_page' => 5 ) );
    
        $output = '<ul>';
        foreach ( $authors_posts as $authors_post ) {
            $output .= '<li><a href="' . get_permalink( $authors_post->ID ) . '">' . get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, array(100,100) ) . apply_filters( 'the_title', $authors_post->post_title, $authors_post->ID ) . '</a></li>';
        }
        $output .= '</ul>';
    
        return $output;
    }

    Here is a link to what it currently looks like (see the sidebar)
