    Hi all,

    I've got a problem on the website, where clicking my name (which should return all posts by me) instead pulls a:
    =====
    No Results Found
    The page you requested could not be found. Try refining your search, or use the navigation above to locate the post.
    =====

    It is possible that this could be brought on as a side-effect of changing my username via phpmyadmin (which I did several weeks ago) - as the functionality works fine for the other author on the site.

    Does anyone have any tips for troubleshooting this?

    Cheers,
    Danno

    What's the link that clicking your name gives you? Does the last part match your current username?

    Hey Helen, thanks for the prompt response!

    Yes, the link gives me something that matches my username... specifically:

    http://blog.dontfeedthemonkeys.com/author/chimp%20daddy/

    I've tried manually changing the URL to my old username (cheekychimpanzee) and also to my nickname.. but the same "not found" continues.

    Ah, it seems to me that the space (%20) is what is making it unhappy. I'd advise you to go back and change your username using the same method to chimpdaddy without the space. Be sure that user_nicename is the same.

    You are a CHAMPION.

    That has solved the issue. Thanks so much!!

    Lesson learned for future username choice. :-)

    Hooray, glad it's working! That's actually a new one for me, too.

    Side note: please mark this thread as resolved. Thanks!
