Author Pages Badly Need an Upgrade

    Hi! Author pages in WordPress are from the dark ages and badly need some changes.

    Firstly, the public URL shows the email or login username in it (which is a security hazard), and I can't see any way to fix that other than installing yet another plugin (https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/edit-author-slug?filter=5). Author URL's should be able to be customized on the user's page.

    Secondly, author pages should have their bio, photo, links, etc at the top of the page.

    Thirdly, it should be allowable to have multiple authors (or at least two) for a post.

    There are plugins that customize that. But are you asking about the author pages on the dashboard or what the theme shows?
