Edit Author Slug

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

Why can't I edit my Author Slug?

Make sure you are an admin, or have been assigned the edit_users or edit_author_slug capability.

Why isn't my new Author Slug working?

While I've made every attempt to prevent this, I may have missed a spot or two. First things first, go to Settings > Permalinks and click "Save Changes." You don't need to actually need to make any changes for this to work. Hopefully, this should kick your new Author Slug into gear.

If this doesn't work, make sure you don't have any slug conflicts from other posts/pages/plugins/permalink setting/etc. If you're still experiencing the issue, feel free to post a support request in the forums.
