Due to recent topics related to this...they have inspired me to accomplish the same thing...my wanting a separate blog/post list page limited by author.
At first I tried @d4z_c0nf functions.php solution at the bottom of the first page in this topic...it works BUT when I insert an author param the page renders as an author archive page.
So next I tried @acub solution in this topic; this appears to work perfectly with my limited testing...BUT I imagine I would need a separate template for each author param...or is there a better way?
So, with all that said, can I name them as blog1.php, blog2.php, etc., or is there a proper naming convention to accomplish this?
The codex leads me to believe I can name the file whatever I want...and that I also need to change the template name inside the file as well.
Thanks for your assistance.
