    Hi,

    not having much luck on working this out or finding the answer so would be eternally grateful if anyone can help!

    Basically I have the Cubepoints plugin. In the 'top user' widget it displays the highest ranking members, which is great. But, would love to be able to have a link for each user it lists that goes to the users author page that display there bio and previous posts. Anyone know how to do this?

    Sounds like a great idea, I'll work on implementing it in my mod version of this plugin.

    I can do this in my Wp BuddyPress installation.

    In the TEXT FIELD of the TOP USER WIDGET write basic HTML link in this format :

    <a href="http://domain.com/member_page_slug/%user%">%username%</a>

    - Change the domain with yours. (of course :) )
    - Change member_page_slug with the slug name of the page which assosiated with your BuddyPress members component.
    (Check it out in 'BuddyPress' --> 'Pages' )

    --------------------------------------------------

    Once again, I'm using BuddyPress... in case you are using standard WordPress (without BuddyPress), then my best guess the format should be :

    <a href="http://domain.com/author/%user%">%username%</a>

    Give it a shot and let me know if it's work on your site...

    :)

    @alvbayu yeah the second one works, you just need to make sure the author url has the correct link structure.
