How To Filter Blog Posts By Author In WordPress Admin Panel

In this post, I will share step-by-step instructions on how you can easily filter posts by authors in WordPress Admin Panel.

The default admin panel lets you filter posts by the below functions.

  • Month
  • Category
  • Post Status

The Author filter is not included by default. You can easily get posts for a particular author with the author filter functionality.

Let’s start to understand the author filter.

Please copy the below code and paste it into your child theme’s functions.php file.

* This section makes posts in the admin filterable by the author.

add_action('restrict_manage_posts', 'ditt_filter_by_author');
function ditt_filter_by_author() {
  $params = array(
    'name' => 'author',
    'role__in' => array('author','editor','administrator')
  if ( isset($_GET['user']) ) {
    $params['selected'] = $_GET['user'];
    wp_dropdown_users( $params );

For the output, Please check the below video.

Adding an Author filter in WordPress is now easy.
