Recent Post by Current Author widget

  1. I have a blog with multiple authors. It would be very nice if it was possible to display recent posts by current author in the sidebar (widget). I have made the sidebare be "about the author" on the current posts... so it would be nice to be able to keep it like that also for displaying Recent posts.

    The blog I need help with is enkelhetenilivet.no.

  2. Hi there. Have you tried the Author widget yet? It lists all authors on the site, along with their most recent posts. https://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/authors-widget/

  3. Yes, I know that one. But it does not do what I ask. It would be really easy to implement a checkbox on the "Recent Posts" widget to choose "Display recent posts from current author" i.e. the author of the page the sidebar widget is displayed on.

    I want recent post from current author "only". Also that Authors widget displays ugly username and ugly gravatar image. I use about.me widget to display author information beautifly in the sidebar. With propername and a fantastic image.

  4. I've added your suggestion to our feature request list. I noticed you opened a couple of tickets with this request, so I'll close the others.
