    Iv spent hours trying all kinds of code trying to get a link to an authors posts displayed in the members_header.php.

    Some code iv tried.

    <a href="<?php echo get_author_posts_url(bp_get_member_user_id()); ?>">Read all posts by <?php echo bp_member_name(); ?></a>

    <p>Other posts by <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?></p>

    <a href="<?php echo esc_url( get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) ); ?>" rel="author">
    <?php printf( __( 'View all posts by %s <span class="meta-nav"></span>', TEMPLATE_DOMAIN ), get_the_author() ); ?></a>

    many more.

    Can somebody help me display a link for each authors posts that i can place in the members_header.php?

    Thanks

    Hi @3rdaxis,

    Which author’s posts would you like to display?

    Thanks for the response, I really just need it to detect the author of the profile the link is going to be on since the site will have many authors. Iv tried a few different ways of getting the authors ID out of the loop but nothing Iv tried has worked besides the code i showed in the original post.

    Iv used this which works in the Author Bio on each post.

    <a href="<?php echo esc_url( get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) ); ?>" rel="author">
    <?php printf( __( 'View all posts by %s <span class="meta-nav"></span>', TEMPLATE_DOMAIN ), get_the_author() ); ?></a>

    When viewing a member’s profile page, you can use bp_displayed_user_id() to get the ID of the member. This will then let you display a list of their posts or their latest post. e.g.

    $my_query = new WP_Query( 'author=' . bp_displayed_user_id() );
    
    if ( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
    	while ( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
    		$my_query->the_post();
    		echo '<li>' . get_the_title() . '</li>';
    	}
    } else {
    	// no posts found
    }
    wp_reset_postdata();

    But then note, when you navigate away from the member’s profile page, posts will no longer be displayed due to bp_displayed_user_id() no longer holding a value. To me, this would make sense as if you were viewing the Privacy Policy or About Us pages (for example) you wouldn’t want a member’s posts to show up.

    Thanks Henry, from the code you gave me, i was able to put this one together to display a link to a page of the authors posts with this line of code and it works perfect.

    <a href="<?php echo esc_url( get_author_posts_url( bp_displayed_user_id() ) ); ?>" rel="author">Read all posts by <?php echo bp_displayed_user_fullname(); ?></a>
