WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking for a solution to filter/sort posts by author on category pages/archive pages, ideally by means of a drop-down menu.

I've searched the Wordpress plugin repository but cannot find any suitable plugins.

I have a multi-author website, some of whom have hundreds of posts and post in various categories. Many of my visitors like to follow certain authors (sometimes only on their posts in certain categories) and when navigating to these specific categories they find it hard to scroll through the numerous posts by various authors to find the author they're looking for.

My solution would be to have an author filter per category but I'm open to other suggestions if anyone has any?
