I have some author pages in my theme (using a modified version of the UDesign theme and the Pagenavi plugin. Pagination works on the blog, but not on the author pages. I’m getting 404’s on the author page urls.
Under my permalinks, I have set the following:
Permalink Settings > Common Settings > Custom Structure
Where do I start on this? I’ve seen lots of posts about custom content types, but this is a standard post. I’ve seen other information on adding custom rewrite rules and endpoints, but I’m thinking there’s probably some other standard CMS based solution for this, am I wrong?
The reason I ask, is I’m not sure what the endpoint is, since it doesn’t seem to be resolving to author.php, but instead going directly to the 404 page. I’m new to wordpress architecture, so I’m not sure how to get the query or what code would be relevant.
My biggest problem is I don’t know where this redirect is happening.
Try this code at the top instead of what you have there (everything above <div class=”entry”>). Make sure to backup that code though incase it doesnt work. There is another possible solution, but I want to see if this works first.
Replaced, same result. I tried: /blog/dr-fiona-nd/page/1/ and also got the 404. I think the endpoint isn’t resolving because I tried echoing an html comment as the first line of code in author.php and I didn’t see that show up on the 404 page, but I did see it via the direct path (so I know the change was propagating).
