Make Author.php Include Custom Post Types

I was going through a strange issue where Author page was not showing the posts which belongs to Custom Post Types. After Googling, I found this article which shows how to include Custom Post Types for archives.php

I got inspiration from above mentioned article snippet and wrote the following snippet to modify Author.php page to include Custom Post Types

function wpbrigade_author_custom_post_types( $query ) {
  if( is_author() && empty( $query->query_vars['suppress_filters'] ) ) {
    $query->set( 'post_type', array(
     'post', 'my-custom-post-type-here'
	  return $query;
add_filter( 'pre_get_posts', 'wpbrigade_author_custom_post_types' );

  1. You should include the author check with category and tag:
    if( is_author() || is_category() || is_tag() && empty( $query->query_vars[‘suppress_filters’] ) )
