I have created the author.php template so my subscribers can have their own profile pages and I love how it turned out. But, I was wondering if there was a way to have my author page permalinks created as "mydomain.com/?author=authorname" instead of "mydomain.com/?author=3".
If I have 20 users and delete some, and someone new registers, it will still assign them as author number 21, even if I only have 15 users. I'm looking for a way to fix that.
I also would love to know if there is a way to change my user online plugin so that if a member is online and you click the member name, it will bring you to their profile page.
