I have a Multi Author Blog, I want to show Recent post of each user / author. Image has been attached for more convenient, see the Red selected area where author's recent post is showing.

Author Recent post

  • What have you tries so far, what research have you done. Please edit you question and add all relevant code and explain where your code is failing – Pieter Goosen May 29 '14 at 9:33

To do this we will need to do 2 queries:

1) Get a list of all the users on the site via wp_user_query

2) Get posts from all the users using wp_query

The code:

$user_query = new WP_User_Query( 'Author' );

if ( ! empty( $user_query->results ) ) {
 foreach ( $user_query->results as $user ) {
  echo '<h2>' . $user->display_name . '</h2>';
  $query1 = new WP_Query( 'posts_per_page=4&author_name='.$user->display_name );
  while ( $query1->have_posts() ) {
   echo '<p><a href="'.get_permalink().'">'.get_the_title().'</a></p>';

It's not tested but it should display like:

Author 1: - Post 1 Post 2 Post 3 Post 4

Author 2: - Post 1 Post 2 Post 3 Post 4

  • Thanks for your effort. I've already user list, i just need each user 5-8 last with thumbnail. – Maan May 29 '14 at 9:44
  • you would use get_the_thumbnail() to get the thumbnail for each post, put it after the $query1 ->the_post() – Gareth Gillman May 29 '14 at 9:48
  • It's difficult for me to add this code in it as I have an author card that have Avator & showing user name as well. Check the screenshot please link Give me only that code which show recent post with image. – Maan May 29 '14 at 14:01
  • Anyone else know. – Maan May 29 '14 at 21:51
