Maybe I'm not doing things the proper way, but it seems to be working very well. Also, this question title is so confusing. I don't know how to ask the question. Perhaps someone can help edit? Thanks.
I have a custom post type: "employee"
Every "employee" CPT has a CPT Post with: "Firstname Lastname" + bio + image + metadata.
Example: John Doe (id=1234)
I have a single-employee.php template that outputs the single employee.
Everything works great.
Here's the hard part: the way this is setup, I HAVE TO separate employees from authors. So that's why I created a CPT. However, many employees are also registered blog authors. So they actually have blog posts that do exist.
*How can I loop through the employee CPT and output a UL of all blog posts by a single employee? *
