    My website is up and running at http://www.cactus-cola.com/blog
    The only problem is that I would like to have a different author address. This is a multi-author blog, and when I click on an author (to see only his/hers posts) it redirects me to something like http://www.cactus-cola.com/blog/?author=3
    I would really like it to redirect to http://www.cactus-cola.com/blog/fabio (or any other author nickname).
    Is that possible? Anyone has any ideas? Help Please!

    Hi there,

    You've deleted the meta tag that indicates what version of WP you're using, but if you upgrade to the latest version the feature you want is built in. See http://www.fictionfelicis.com/fiction and click any authors name. That's automatic - I didn't do anything.

    Actually I am using the latest version (1.5.2). I don't believe I have changed anything that would change the author link. Strange...

    Anyone has any ideas?

    If you can use "nice" permalinks - it will do exactly what you want.
    Admin panel > Options > Permalinks: read everything!
    and Using_Permalinks

    Thanks, Moshu.

    The only problem now is that it tells me to edit the .htaccess file, wich I can't find on my server...

    Any ideas?

    My idea is to read again everything at the link above, especially 2 Where's my .htaccess file?.
