I am using 'author' in 'supports' array for my 'custom post type', that shows a list of all users of the site on add or edit post screen to assign author for the post. But I want to filter that list to a role. How can I filter authors list for a particular role? I don't want to show a long list of users there. Thanks in advance.

  • When listing authors in a role, instead of displaying their names, display their posts? – Tom J Nowell Aug 19 '13 at 11:46
  • no I have a custom post type that has 'author' support which displays authors names' as dropdown list on edit or add new post screen to choose from. I want to filter that list for a specific role e.g. admin so that only admin users will be on dropdown list of authors. – Vipin Kr Singh Aug 19 '13 at 11:57
  • hmm your question appears to be incomplete, there was no mention of a drop down or user interface component to this question before that comment – Tom J Nowell Aug 19 '13 at 14:45
