I have two authors pages, one displays about 5 posts. Then I'm trying to setup another page that will be all of their posts. I have created a template called moreauthorposts.php and I'm trying to pass the author variable to this page. Problem is if i pass domain.com/more-author-posts?author=johndoe it gets stripped out. How can I retrieve this value? Is this even possible in wordpress? I know WP Rewrite is jacking my URL structure somehow I'm just not sure.
and tried reading this but didn't have any luck:
