author and domain/categoryname permalink (bugs) (1 post)

    I have setup permalinks:
    /item/%postname% for posts
    /category/%categoryname% for categories

    The problem is, that the author link returned by the_author_posts_link is then /item/author/author-nick what is quite stupid, i want it to be
    /author/author-nick without the /item

    And it is also very stupid, that the_author_posts_link return only full name as an anchor title. I want to have freedom - e.g. link on his nickname, his description or on anything else (e.g. "my articles").

    And next relevant - i would like to have category without /category/ so only mydomain.com/category-name
    the problem is, that when i delete /category from permalinks setum, the system takes it as default (so with /category)

    I think all things are probably "bugs" - all other systems have special permalinks for authors etc. Of course i can make hand-made changes to .htaccess and do not use the build in tool, but it is very unhandy
