If this is a duplicate, I apologize. I have searched and searched with no luck.

I have a custom author.php set which shows the most recent 10 posts (As it's set in the admin panel under General > Reading). I want to have a link to "View all posts by this author". This will link to a page showing all posts by that specific author. All the information I've found has been about the author.php page which I don't want to change. Thanks

The WordPress template hierarchy accommodates this out of the box. WP will only use author.php if it cannot find author-{nicename}.php or author-{id}.php.

See the codex.

Thanks for the reply. I don't want to create another author page or even specific author pages per author. I guess I need to create a custom archive page that just shows posts from a specific author. – jphogan Aug 13 '13 at 13:49
