this code

    <?php get_header(); ?>

<!-- Show custom post type posts from the author -->
<?php global $wp_query;
query_posts( array(
    'post_type' => 'sikayet' ,
    'author' => get_queried_object_id(), 
    'showposts' => 10 )
); ?>

<?php if ( have_posts() ): ?>
    <h3>SIKAYETKLER <?php echo $curauth->first_name; ?>:</h3>
    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
        <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: <?php the_title(); ?>">
<?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
<?php else: ?>
    <p><?php _e('User has no custom posts'); ?></p>
<?php endif; ?>

<?php get_footer(); ?>
  • You should use pre_get_posts filter to change query parameters (like post type, number of posts per page, etc.) insted create new WP_Query.

If you use WordPress author template to show user posts ( example.com/author/{user_name} ) the best solution will be to change the main query via the pre_get_posts filter hook.

function se339534_author_any_post_types $query ) {

    // apply changes only for author archive page
    if ( ! is_author() || ! $query->is_main_query() )

    $query->set('post_type', 'any');
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'se339534_author_any_post_types' );
  • not worked.. i just need to show users other posts of author Commented Jun 4, 2019 at 10:46
  • What is the "author page"? I understand this is not the default template provided by WordPress and the address is not /author/{user_name}.

  • its defaut author template.. provided by WordPress... Commented Jun 4, 2019 at 11:25
  • So even if you add this code to the functions.php file, you still see only the list of "blog" posts?

  • probleblem is that.. author.php crated by me.. and this in page there are information and picture of author.. and i also want to display posts publised by this author that visitor can see this information. when they entered author.php Commented Jun 4, 2019 at 11:32

I'm not sure if this is what you mean but this Wordpress function can display list of authors:

wp_list_authors( $args );


You can use this one to display the posts of an author: https://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Author_Parameters

The author is the parameter.
