Template for Single Author

There seems to be no ability to create templates for the single author template. Am I missing something? I could create a CPT but I would rather have a template that targets the single author page instead.

Technically this is not a single but an archive template (as it shows all the posts from that author). So you create an archive page with the following conditions:

Indeed! Thanks. But unfortunately, this doesn’t allow for editing the single author (author.php) template. Seems like a feature request needs to be made. I’ve put it on the idea board.

It would be extremely nice if this feature could be edited. thx



hide or show your design section depending on the author id. easy

// Adds a new tag 'current_author_id' to the Bricks Builder dynamic tags list.
add_filter( 'bricks/dynamic_tags_list', 'add_current_author_id_tag_to_builder' );
function add_current_author_id_tag_to_builder( $tags ) {
    $tags[] = [
        'name'  => 'current_author_id',
        'label' => 'Current Author ID',
        'group' => 'Author Data',

    return $tags;

// Retrieves the current author ID on an author archive page.
function get_current_author_id() {
    return is_author() ? get_queried_object_id() : '';

// Renders the 'current_author_id' tag by fetching the current author ID.
add_filter( 'bricks/dynamic_data/render_tag', 'render_current_author_id_tag', 10, 3 );
function render_current_author_id_tag( $tag, $post, $context = 'text' ) {
    if ( $tag === 'current_author_id' ) {
        return get_current_author_id();
    return $tag;

// Replaces the '{current_author_id}' placeholder in content with the actual current author ID.
add_filter( 'bricks/dynamic_data/render_content', 'render_current_author_id_in_content', 10, 3 );
add_filter( 'bricks/frontend/render_data', 'render_current_author_id_in_content', 10, 2 );
function render_current_author_id_in_content( $content, $post, $context = 'text' ) {
    if ( strpos( $content, '{current_author_id}' ) !== false ) {
        $author_id = get_current_author_id();
        $content = str_replace( '{current_author_id}', $author_id, $content );
    return $content;
