User Profile Pages (6 posts)

    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.

    If you want to change your source, it is possible, but you will always have to keep track of your changes (and redo them if you want to update wordpress).

    I figured it out. It was a simple fix.

    Are you willing to share your author.php file? I'm looking for a similar plugin

    If it helps, most likely hpnotiq just changed his linkage from:

    ?author=3

    to:

    ?author_name=authorname
