Problem with url like upload.php?author=1 #59

I'm trying to filter media files under Media by user. Normally I can just use url like upload.php?author=1 and I can filter only media files from author 1. When Co Authors Plus is activated that doesn't work. I get "No media attachments found." or in some cases one media file.

The reason I'm asking this is that I have magazine with lots of students (authors) and they upload a lot of (unnecessary) images. It would help if they could filter they own images or admin could do it. I'm trying to make a plugin which make author name clickable instead of just plain text and adds that url upload.php?author=1.

Any idea how to fix this?


The problem is in posts_where and posts_join filters. There should be global $pagenow and if statement if( is_author() && $pagenow == 'post.php' ) in those functions. I'm not sure should I do Pull Request or not but I hope you could update plugin.


v2.7.0 is way over due, but it's becoming a priority to get it out. I'll take a look at this as a part of that release


This is no longer issue in 2.7-alpha1. Author links are working as they should be.


Ah, it was fixed in 67993e3
