WP 3.5. There are multiple authors in blog.
I'm calling this in the loop, so it should work, no?
get_author_posts_url(get_the_author_meta('ID')) is returning simply the domain name, not the full URI string.
the ID being returned is correct. (I checked it.)
Furthermore, when I type in a URL that should work: http://test/authors/Pretty-Name/
I get 404. (this is a localhost alias, not a live site.) That problem holds for any versions of the author names.
I created an author.php template, but that isn't being called.
I've looked at the codex on author template, and the various author function calls, but no luck.
Any guidance to offer?
