I'm having a strange problem. My author permalinks lead to 404 instead of being directed to the author.php (or index.php), except for one admin. There are 2 other admins, but it doesn't work for them, either.
the_author_posts_link() output the permalinks, I really need to get them to work. I looked up "Using Permalinks", but don't have a clue as to how (or if) the .htaccess has to be modified. Or can my problem be solved using options->permalinks in the admin panel? Right now, it's set to create permalinks based on date and postname (and hasn't been changed recently).
However, the default query strings (like /?author_name=x) work, but then the loop in author.php won't output any of the author's posts.
I know, there are several (unresolved) threads with a similar question/problem, but please help me on this... THX! :)
