I've got 30+ users and several custom post types.

  • Classes
  • Downloads
  • Parties
  • Events
  • etc

At the moment, I'm using author.php to display all these custom posts for that user, each post type in a loop, each hidden in a tab format.


I've been asked if there's a way of having each post type on it's on URL




Can this be done?

Anything can be done with URLs in WordPress... unfortunately not too easily a lot of the time. :)

It will probably be overkill to construct completely custom rewrite rules for that. Since you only have one extra variable/variation to the template it seems like handling it via endpoint (see add_rewrite_endpoint()) might be sufficient.

  • Thanks for pointing that out to me, do you have any examples of endpoints in use? My research so far has only lead me to the core function, and not a custom one May 28, 2014 at 9:28
  • @AndrewLazarus linked Codex documentation has link to pretty extensive blog post on endpoints
