    I would like to have the author names under each post link to the author description. I searched through the template tags and I don't see how to do it...

    thanks!

    Use the author_description tag

    That's not exactly what I'm asking.

    While, yes, that does return the author description, I'm trying to figure out how to get the author's name in each post to *link* to the author description.

    Like, you just read a post and were like, "Who the hell is this smartass?" so you click the name after "POSTED BY:" and go to see their bio.

    Maybe this is what you are after: Author_Templates.
