[Plugin: BP Blog Author Link] Not working when network activated (6 posts)

    Hi Ron,

    I am having an issue with this plugin and was wondering if you could help.

    I have the plugin network activated and buddypress activated and setup.

    I have put an author link within a few elements of my site, when the author is the admin and on the main blog it works fine but when its on another users blog it doesnt.

    Thanks
    Jordan

    To expand my explanation on twitter:

    BuddyPress needs to be active on the site where you want the author link to show the link to BP profile. In other words BuddyPress needs to be network activated. Without BP being active my plugin does not have access to the settings that define the BP member profile URL.

    If BP is network activated then check the template tag being used in the theme on the user's site. Replace whatever is being used with the template tag being used on the main site (where the author link is working).

    That's a deprecated function.

    Try the_author_link();
