Is there a way to filter autoblog posts by author?

I am trying to use autoblog to pull posts for one author from a company blog to post as excerpts on her personal blog. I don't want every blog post by everyone at the company, but only the ones written by a single author. I can't figure out a way to do it with the existing filters. Is there a way to filter by author?

    Hi @digdug

    welcome to the community, hope you're well.

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that's possible at this time. You could possibly create a post for feature requests & see if there's enough interest, this filter could then be added to a future release if so.

    Sorry, I can't be of much more help.

    Thanks, Vaughan. I was able to figure out a way to make it work. I discovered there is an author-specific feed on the source blog, so just used that URL in autoblog. Works great so far.

    Thanks for your response. If these Q&As are public, maybe this post will help others who have the same issue.

    hi @digdug

    Thanks for letting us know you solved it.

    that's funny, it completely slipped my mind regarding that. using another feed, so simple to forget. i need more coffee.

    If you require further help with anything, don't hesitate to ask.
