Author name links to a specific post (8 posts)

    I want to make a community website but since I noticed that profiles are not searchable, well the info that is in the profiles, I thought my members could create a post as a profile and ad much info and pictures so that they could easily be found when searched.

    (If anyone has a better idea of knows a way to make profiles searchable, thank you to let me know.)

    My question : could someone tell me how I could automatically link the authors' names with that specific post tehy will use as a profile, so that wherever their name is clicked, the link opens that post instead of the usual profile page?

    Thank you very much!

    Looks to me that you would be better served by setting up Author Templates so that each time you click on Author's name, it will bring you to a page with info about the author and/or all his/her posts in your site.

    And that page would be as searchable as posts you think?

    So you want the content on people's profile to be searchable, right?

    Just wondering because I was going to suggest a solution, then realised that maybe I was going off tangent.

    That is right Mished. I want the profile's content to be searchable.

    Well mercime, I hope you can explain me how I can make the author page searchable. I just set up everything and no, it does not seem to work. I even installed the plugin Search everything and no result... If I enter a keyword used in the About me field for example, the search gives no result at all.

    :/
