install WP3.0, use the mulisite feature and create a template in the first blog. This template has different loops and switch in each blog and use the content in the loop; use function switch_to_blog() for switch and then use default wp_query() Also you can use import via RSS, maybe with plugins, maybe RSSimport, or own source

You can modify all main queries before they happen via the pre_get_posts action and a check if is_main_query: function wpa75492_post_type_query( $query ) { if ( $query->is_main_query() ) { $query->set( 'post_type', array( 'book' ) ); } } add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'wpa75492_post_type_query' );

You will want to implement that using AJAX. Read these two articles from the Codex for further information about integrating Wordpress with some AJAX action: AJAX AJAX in Plugins Just to give you a head start, you will want something like this: Client-side (Javascript) $(element).click(function() { var data = { action: ...

I found the answer to this from @bybloggers answer found here. http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/a/58793/12920 I modified his code very slightly to tailor it to my needs, but this is the code that worked for me and was exactly what I was looking for: // Create the query var so that WP catches the custom /member/username url function ...

Basic debugging... $current_author = get_query_var('author'); var_dump($current_author); ... would reveal that $current_author is a string, not an object. The problem is that you are trying to use the string as an object in the query. get_posts( 'author='.$current_author->id.'&posts_per_page=1&order=DESC&orderby=post_date' ); Change ...

http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_comments#Parameters your problem is using author_email, you need user_id i just use similar script. <?php $args = array( 'user_id' => $user->ID, 'number' => 10, // how many comments to retrieve 'status' => 'approve' ); $comments = get_comments( $args ...

toscho is correct. User levels have been deprecated for a long time now. However, the following will get you the available information about the author of the posts on an author archive page. $author = get_queried_object(); var_dump($author); In that dump you should see everything you need, but use the role not the user level-- look in $author->roles. ...

If you are talking about author.php in your theme directory, usually at wp-content/themes/<YOURTHEMENAME> this isn't a core file but part of your theme. Themes don't get changed when WordPress is updated, so concerning WordPress updates themes are safe. But if your theme isn't custom made by you (which I assume here) this file would be changed if you ...

Don't run a new query in the template, modify the main query before it's run via the pre_get_posts action in the theme's functions.php file. function wpd_author_query( $query ) { if ( $query->is_author() && $query->is_main_query() ) { // your code to set $current_user_name here $query->set( 'meta_key', ...

If you don't want to use Multisite, yet still want to have multiple blogs with a common backend, another idea is: Customize your theme's Author Templates so each author's "blog homepage" has a distinct design Create several different stylesheets, one per author. Use some conditional logic to display the appropriate stylesheet when viewing an individual ...

Could be because you are passing an array of array try this: <?php $my_query = new WP_Query(); $my_query->query(array( 'post__in' => $curauth->user_favourite_post)); while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?> <h3><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3> ...

<?php if(!empty($curauth->description)) { ?> <div class="title">About me</div> <div class="descwrap"> <div class="descinner"> <?php echo $curauth->description; ?> </div> </div> <?php } ?> This should work for you. It checks if the variable is empty or not ...

You can do this using both client-side and server-side validation. If you're doing something on the client-side then you should duplicate the functionality on the server, too. Modern debugging tools make it far too easy to circumvent JavaScript functionality. This questions lends itself well to begin solved as plugin, so I'm approaching it as such. First, ...

The mistake is in your first block of code: <?php if (have_posts()): the_post(); ?> <h3> <?php _e('All posts by'); ?> <?php echo get_the_author(); ?> <span class="arrows">&raquo;</span> </h3> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post();?> You call the_post() to populate the regular ...

You're going to want to use the author_template filter to process this. Just to clarify, the filter's "author" means all users, it appears. I'm not sure why. This will be called while the backend is deciding which template page to use when showing a user's profile on your site. You need to add an author-editor.php file and then filter to it if the user ...

Change: $user_roles = $current_user->roles; with $user = new WP_User( $user_id ); $user_roles = $user->roles; and the $user_id should e the actual user id who's role you are trying to get. Update, Sorry i just read the author template part so try this: //first get the current author whos page you are viewing if(isset($_GET['author_name'])) ...

I assume you are trying to show the role of the post's Author and not the current user viewing the author page. assuming you are inside the loop, do the following: //get the post author's ID $user_id = get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ); //assume we are in The Loop $user_obj = get_userdata( $user_id ); if( !empty( $user_obj->roles ) ){ foreach( ...

You have a couple of issues here, the main one being that your query sets posts per page to two, but the number of pages available has no relationship to your custom query. If your "Blog pages show at most" under Reading settings is set to 10, and an author only has <= 10 posts, there is no second page. The other issue you will discover is that you're ...

If you use code similar to setup the rewrite rules: function ex_rewrite( $wp_rewrite ) { $feed_rules = array( 'author/?$' => 'index.php?author_page=author_page' ); $wp_rewrite->rules = $feed_rules + $wp_rewrite->rules; return $wp_rewrite; } // refresh/flush permalinks in the dashboard if this is changed in any way ...

You can have as many authors as you'd like. If the artists are not the authors of the blog posts, I would consider using a custom taxonomy instead, because it would be a more accurate model. EDIT As it's been pointed out in the comments, taxonomies don't have built-in meta data, and custom post types or users are sometimes easier to handle.

You can access your wp_users table using WP_User_Query. http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_User_Query For example: $author_query = new WP_User_Query(); // Get the results $authors = $author_query->get_results(); A more comprehensive example can be seen here: http://wpsmith.net/2012/wp/an-introduction-to-wp_user_query-class/

If you're trying to get user data for the displayed profile, you can do it like so: $thisauthor = get_userdata(intval($author)); That'll return an object filled with everything you need. For instance, if you need the user ID, you can call it like so: $thisauthor->ID I use this extensively on the profiles on my site: http://androidandme.com/user/clark ...

Use internal/built-in classes WP got … the WP_User_Query class. You can easily query for users of a role and return only those fields, that you actually need. wp_list_authors(); Example code $authors = new WP_User_Query( array( 'role' => 'editor', 'fields' => array( 'first_name', 'last_name' ) ) ); Then ...

First, Explaining Loops You're dealing with two kinds of "loops." The first is a loop in PHP, the second is a loop in WordPress. Loop in PHP kaiser gave you some code that will generate a list of authors on your site. You can iterate through this list and print information on the screen. // Fetch an array of authors from WordPress and store it in the ...

As the Codex states for the antispambot() function: Return Values (string) Converted email address. You have to do one of the following: echo antispambot( $curauth->publicemail ); // OR... print antispambot( $curauth->publicemail ); So your full example would look like the following: if ( ! empty( $curauth->publicemail ) ) { echo ...

This looks like a simular issue to this one with wp-pageNavi: http://scribu.net/wordpress/wp-pagenavi/right-way-to-use-query_posts.html. Taxonomies and archives should use 'page', not 'paged' so use that in the urls to begin with. Then, to ensure your pagination script works in all locations you can change the way you get your $paged variable. Something ...

When using custom post types I got around this problem by using the following code. Of course you will need to put in the HTML for how you want it to display on your site. <?php $temp = $wp_query; $wp_query= null; $wp_query = new WP_Query(); $wp_query->query(''); // Enter you query here ?> <?php while ...

To access the author user object outside of the loop on an author archive, you can do the following: global $curauth; $curauth = (isset($_GET['author_name'])) ? get_user_by('slug', $author_name) : get_userdata(intval($author)); echo 'This is the author page of '.$curauth->display_name;

Use wp_generate_password() to generate passwords. For example, you could add a button to the user profile to get a new password per AJAX. And you have a security vulnerability in your current code: $getId, the substring from a visitor request may contain malicious code. Always escape request data. Read Data Validation for more information, especially ...

An easy way is to use a static variable to store author name, then run again same function on a later hook, maybe 'posts_results' and set back the variable: function wpquery( $query, $query_on_results = NULL ) { static $author_name = NULL; if ( current_filter() === 'pre_get_posts' ) { if ( $query->is_author() && $query->is_main_query() ...
