[resolved] Click the picture but direct to error page (4 posts)

    Hi, the author widget shows up fine on all my post. However, when I click the author picture or the author short profile, it will direct me to a error page. Is it just me or everyone?

    what i want to do is, when click on the picture, I want to direct it to a page that shows all the blog posted by this author. Or maybe direct me to a author page (which i'm going to build soon). Is there any way to do this? Thank you.

    The site I'm talking about is tenoclockwine.com

    First of all Veronica I was unable to find my widget working on your website. Secondly, my widget doesn't display the author image/gravatar as a click-able link, the picture is simply not click-able so there is no question of getting to an error page.

    The widget already offers two links "More Articles by the author" and "Read more" to take the reader to the Author page, you can leverage those.

    Question about an Author profile page is already answered in the FAQs (please refer to the question "The link to the author profile page doesn't work for me!"). You need to have an author.php file in your theme to be able to show a page similar to this one. Otherwise, WordPress works in the default way and displays all author posts when the "Read More" is clicked.

    eh? You can't find the widget??? try this link: http://tenoclockwine.com/beginners-land/key-factors-affecting-the-flavour-of-wine/

    So you'll see the author veronica xu on the right side. And if you click the picture or the bio, it will direct you to an error page.

    Interesting Veronica, will it be possible for you to send the screen-shots of the Widget Admin screen and the author profile screen at debashish on gmail? I see that you have configured Twitter URL wrongly, but that shouldn't cause the issue, unless there is a bug in the Widget. Your screen-shots will help me understand.

    Please also tell me if you customized the widget code or are you using it, as is? Thanks.
