    Hi @euronur

    It’s not possible at the moment, but I’ve added it to the to do list.

    Hi @euronur

    Just released an update.

    You can show the posts like this:

    [authors_list after_title="{alf:posts}"]

    By default it shows 1 posts, but you can make it show more:

    [authors_list after_title="{alf:posts amount=10}"]

    And of course you can show it in different places, the following are available:

    • before_avatar
    • before_title
    • before_count
    • before_bio
    • before_link
    • after_avatar
    • after_title
    • after_count
    • after_bio
    • after_link

      The posts are shown as a list. So if you want to make it not look like a list just add this in WP admin > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:

      .authors-list-posts {
          list-style-type: none;
          list-style-position: inside;
          margin: 0;
          padding: 0;
      }

    Thank you for the quick implementation. It’s already a start. Perhaps this could be a suggestion for further developments. Take a look at this:

    Hi,

    You’re welcome.

    The only thing missing is the date of the post, correct?

    Not quite. Date should be of course, but the design is also important. For example, if you use 4 columns, it looks good on the PC screen. On mobile devices it remains 4 columns and everything is squeezed. You can also see the result if you make the browser window wider and narrower. Responsive design support is missing.

    There is the possibility to exclude users by ID, but is there also the function to display only certain author ID’s? That would be great. It would also be good to hide bullets in front of the article title if required. Depending on the style, this would disturb the appearance considerably.

    Further suggestions are in the works 🙂

    Another possibility would be for example: Show only the authors who wrote an article today or in the last X days.

    Alternatively you could support local avatars like Simple Local Avatars instead of Gravatar.

    Woah, sorry about that. I have no idea how responsiveness was missed. Thanks for pointing out. We’ll get that sorted out in next update.

    An update will be released next week with the following:

    • Responsiveness
    • Option to include only specific authors by ID
    • Option for the posts not to be HTML list items
    • Simple Local Avatars support

    And also hopefully the “latest post date limit”. Can’t promise that one in this next update but will try.

    What’s the command to show the authors who only published a post today?

    Hi @euronur

    Wasn’t able to implement that one in the previous update, moved it for the next one which is either today or tomorrow.

    Hi @euronur

    Released the new update.

    For the date limit you can use:

    [authors_list latest_post_after="1"]

    It will show posts in the last 24 hours.

    And of course works with other values for more days.

    Great! Thank you very much for your trouble!

    Will it be visible 24 hours after release or only until midnight? Until midnight would be useful to make the new authors visible when the date changes.

    Hi @euronur

    It’s based on hours, if set to 1 (day) it shows based on the last 24 hours.

    The way I thought of it is that way the authors get the same level of exposure, if they publish at 10pm they won’t be gone from there after 2 hours. Which would avoid multiple authors publishing right after midnight to get the most exposure.

    But if you prefer it with a date limit (based on date alone and not time) I can make some adjustments in there for the next update.

    You’re right when publications take place throughout the day. With daily newspapers, however, the contributions are already fixed in advance and are shown for the period of the entire day and should no longer be visible the next day. This is essential for authors who write daily. Therefore the possibility of a date limitation would also be meaningful.

    Hi @euronur

    Will take care of it for the next update. Will be released early next week.
