Author Link Issue w/ Space

    When I use the author link in my posts, it works as intended save for usernames that use a space. For those users, the link returns a 404 error.

    Is there a way to accommodate these users?

  • I have the same problem (with no solution). You may want to consider rewording and elaborating on your question though. I only understood because I’m experiencing the same problem.

    BTW-have you figured out the solution to this problem?

    I’ve this problem, too.

    It’s disappointing for some new blog user…

    Same problem here. About link and category links give me a 404 error.

    Help please!

    I am pretty convinced that this problem arises in a Fantastico installation of WP. I installed WP (through Fant.) using the username “admin” and the link then does not return a 404. Then on my other blog, when I input “David Peyton” as the username, it 404’ed me.

    It’s the first time I hear about Fantastico, while the author’s pages are not working on many WP blogs as i verified.

    The issue is reported on WP trac, too.
