Description

For whatever reason, the default behavior is to only count the number of 'post' that an author has published.

With the advent of custom post types, they should be included as well if the CPT has the 'author' capability.

Currently, the author archive can include CPTs if you manually alter the query - this should be enabled by default if authorship is allowed.

It's debatable. Maybe instead I want to have a count for each post type, each in it's own column.

Replying to scribu:

It's debatable. Maybe instead I want to have a count for each post type, each in it's own column.

Perhaps, would get messy though no? In any case, I think it's important that they be represented in SOME form, be it within the normal count or an alternate UI decision like columns.
