Possible bug? Browsing author's posts. (3 posts)

    Hi...

    I'm having two problems in author-based browsing of a blog.

    First, it works if the blog is in the root of the domain, like: http://www.mywebsite.com/author/me/
    But it doesn't work if wordpress is installed and works in a folder, like:
    http://www.mywebsite.com/blog/author/me/
    I have a 404 error.

    The second problem is that wordpress is removing the "." from the users, so if my username is:
    firstname.lastname

    The generated link from the template is:
    http://www.mywebsite.com/author/firstnamelastname/

    Shouldn't it be:
    http://www.mywebsite.com/author/firstname.lastname/

    ???

    Hi Nokao,
    perhaps it is because this author has no posts (yet). For this problem I created a plugin which prevents the 404 at the authors page, when the author has no posts:
