How to Link to All Articles Written by Admin in WordPress

The Internet Patrol default featured image

If you have a WordPress site, you may want to provide links to all articles written by a certain author. Generally, this is easy to do – but what if you started your site out as “admin”, and have lots of articles written while you are logged in as the administrator? How to link to all of admin’s articles? The posts will show as being written by whatever you have set as your “Display name publicly as” name, but there is no obvious way to link to all of those posts written by admin. Unless you know this simple secret.

First, the link to any author other than “admin” is simple – it goes like this:


http://www.example.com/{author}/{authors-user-name}

By this logic, it would seem that to link to all of admin’s articles, you would just do:

http://www.example.com/{author}/{admin}/

But guess what, that doesn’t work.

But, happily, you are nearly there!

Even though the user name for the admin is, well, “admin”, as an author, admin’s name is actually “site-admin” (go figure).

 

So, try this:

http://www.theinternetpatrol.com/author/site-admin/

There you go!
