    Is there any way to show posts by user as well as by category? (Without creating a category for each user, that is.) Referring to http://www.allpar.com/weblogs/ (just set up).

    In The Database

    there is a link between the post and the author .

    wp_posts --> post_author

    wp_users --> ID

    You can make some queries to get the posts of a specific user after making the links between the 2 tables .

    Good Luck .

    Hmmmm.... OK.... so that's a bunch of code-writing I take it... nothing so simple as, say, topic/1223?user=2 ?

    Do you have any idea who I could get to write up a bit of code to actually do this? I don't find php and MySQL to be easy - I'm an editor, not a coder!

    This template tag Template_Tags/wp_list_authors generates a list from where you can access every author's archive.
