  • How to Display related posts by posts current author


    Adding the first snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will let you display 5 related posts by the current author. Add the second snippet into the single.php of your wordpress theme in the location you wish to display the related posts. This is a great little snippet from people over at wpbeginner.com.

  • Bruno Monteiro

    Hi there!
    How can I show posts from a specific Custom Post Type related to post Author?

    I tried this but didn’t worked. It returned all posts from all site members instead.

    $authors_posts = get_posts( array( ‘author’ => $authordata->ID, ‘post__not_in’ => array( $post->ID ), ‘post_type’ => ‘membros_documentos’, ‘orderby’ => ‘date’, ‘order’ => ‘DESC’, ‘posts_per_page’ => ‘-1’ ) );

    Please help.
    Thank you.
