Edit Author Slug

Allows an admin (or capable user) to edit the author slug of a user, and change the author base.

This plugin allows an Admin to change the author slug (a.k.a. - nicename), without having to actually enter the database. You can also change the Author Base (the '/author/' portion of the author URLs). Two new fields will be added to your Dashboard. The "Edit Author Slug" field can be found under Users > Your Profile or Users > Authors & Users (Users > Users in WP 3.0). The "Author Base" field can be found under Settings > Edit Author Slug. This allows you to craft the perfect URL structure for you Author pages. For your convenience, an Author Slug column is added to make it easier to determine if one needs to change the Author Slug.

WordPress default structure http://example.com/author/username/

Edit Author Slug allows for http://example.com/ninja/master-ninja/

or using a role-based author base http://example.com/ida/master-splinter/ (for an Administrator Role) http://example.com/koga/leonardo/ (for a Subscriber Role)
