I've been working on this for days. I've tried the WP codex, Google searching, etc, and I know I'm not doing something right but my patience has run out :( .

I have 3 authors. I am trying to display their posts on separate pages so it's not cluttering the main page and I can use a static page. I have templates made for all 3

I want to call 5 posts from each author ID to show on their page.

If one of my author IDs is 4, what would be the best code to use? Can someone give me an example? I would appreciate any help I can get!

Do you need a separate page for each author or one page page for all three? Do you want to exclude their posts from all other archives (front page, categories)? Why don't you use the built-in author archives? – toscho Apr 13 '13 at 5:38
They will be on separate pages. Anything that an individual has written. I've found a plugin that is doing somewhat what I want it to, I just have to mess around with some of the css. I actually found the author pages last night while I was poking around. I just can't seem to find the right code to pull for each Author ID. – Cory Green Apr 13 '13 at 23:03
Have you seen get_author_posts_url( $author_ID );? – toscho Apr 13 '13 at 23:36
Going to try this out. I still haven't had much luck, but I'm back into working on it again. Thanks for the replies everyone, I'll let you know how it goes. I'm just overlooking a lot of things, I know it. – Cory Green Apr 16 '13 at 1:53
