Support » Plugin: Co-Authors Plus » Listing all pages by a co-author

  • Resolved cusinndzl


    I have a website and I’d like to be able to list all of the pages by a particular co-author.

    So far I have this code which will list all of the pages by an author showing the title of the post and having the title linked to the actual post. The problem is that it only will list posts where the co-author is the primary author listed first. All other posts by that author aren’t shown.

    Could you help me out? I like how this code works, I just need it to list all of the posts by the author, and just not the ones where they are the primary author.

        $author_id = get_queried_object()->post_author;
        $my_pages = wp_list_pages('authors='.$author_id.'&sort_column=post_name&echo=0&title_li=');
        $var1 = '<a';
        $var2 = '<a';
        $var3 = '</a>';
        $var4 = '</a>';
        $my_pages = str_replace($var1, $var2, $my_pages);
        $my_pages = str_replace($var3, $var4, $my_pages);
        echo $my_pages;

    I’ve put together a piece of documentation explaining how to query for all posts (or pages) from an author. Check it out, and let me know any specific questions you have.

    Thanks a lot. I’ll let you know if I need any more help.

    I put the code into the website and I get the unexpected T_VARIABLE parse error on line seven of the code on your website. I just wrapped all of the sample code in <?php ?>. What’s my issue?

    Can you share what code you used? The example I’ve published is intended as a guide, not what you should use verbatim.

    // Get the author term based on a variable called $user_login
    global $coauthors_plus;
    $coauthor = $coauthors_plus->get_coauthor_by( 'user_login', $user_login );
    $coauthor_term = $coauthors_plus->get_author_term( $coauthor )
    // Build the query arguments
    $args = array(
        'post_type' => 'post',
        'posts_per_page' => 10,
        'post_status' => 'publish',
        'tax_query' => array(
                'taxonomy' => 'author',
                'field' => 'slug',
                'terms' => $coauthor_term->slug,
    $author_query = new WP_Query( $args );
    if ( $author_query->have_posts() ) :
        while ( $author_query->have_posts() ) : $author_query->the_post();
        // Do your presentation

    Would would I need to modify to get it working?

    The // Do your presentation is a code comment. You’d need to fill it in with the presentational code you need.

    I managed to get it to display posts for the logged in user. How do I modify this code to get the author of the current page, and not the logged in user.

    get_coauthor_by( 'user_login', $user_login )

    Try using:

    get_coauthor_by( 'ID', get_queried_object()->post_author );
