NOTE:

At the top of my author.php I use the following code in order to get user meta for the page:

<? $curauth = (get_query_var('author_name')) ? get_user_by('slug',    
    get_query_var('author_name')) :    
    get_userdata(get_query_var('author'));
?>

End of update

Original Post

First - I am teaching myself how to write php and am also new to this forum.

I am trying to follow the instructions from the top answer for this question Author page: Comments and Ratings? to add comments to author.php - without any luck.

The following is the steps I have taken:

  1. Created a custom post type to hold the comments
  2. Created a new post in said post type
  3. Created custom field in user meta called -> author_post_id
  4. Added newly created post id to user meta for particular user Note: this works because I can add echo statement in the code provided and the above link and it echos the correct post id so I know I did something write (lol)
  5. Copy/pasted the code given on the above link (answer #3) into my author.php

Nothing is showing up. What am I missing?

I even added wp_reset_query(); after the loop that displays post by the author and it made no difference.

Here is my test author page http://test.thesingleparentperspective.com/author/ckmatthews/

  • Please clean up the question. It is now a bit confusing. You do not need to keep information that is no longer relevant.
