Ok. Bonkers was a little harsh, but frustration is getting to me. Bonkers in this case is a simple 404 custom error page... forgive the use of colourful adjectives, please.
I want to generate a comprehensive list of post titles links that comes from the currently viewed author which is outputted on my single23.php template.
This template is deep rooted ie:
single product page (single23.php)
This templates outputs thumbnail book image and all information relevant to this book title. I want all post titles by this author to be displayed in the single23.php's sidebar as links only, so that anyone viewing the page can click "other titles" by this author, which then takes them to the author.php for all "posts" by this author.
Does this make sense?
To make life easier, I've made each book title its very own post, hoping to get around this problem. Everything works brilliantly, except for this.
I understand that I was supposed to generate a new loop, independent of the existing loop structure. I did try what you suggested by placing your information above the existing Loop expression but all I got was a custom 404 error - no posts exists.
My author id is correct - author 6 has the "posts" under which I want to trial this method.
Obviously I want to use whatever method will bring up a list of Post Titles for the author which is currently being viewed, which means hard coding speciic author id's into the sidebar will be a nightmare and probably defeat the purpose of dynamically generated links.
I'm using the category structure as a bookstore, so you can image what my final numbers of "posts" will be for each and every book...
Whew. I hope this makes a little more sense.
