Author page 404 (5 posts)

    I'm trying to implement links to author archive pages so people can easily look at the posts made by that author. We were previously using categories to do this but that is not as efficient.

    The problem is the link to a certain author 404s, and I have no idea why.
    http://www.seganerds.com/author/Chris (404)
    http://www.seganerds.com/?author=1 (this link works)

    I know the author archive page links use the author's login, so I was careful to write the link properly using the login and not nickname.

    The weirdest part is the other author archive links work fine:

    Can anyone tell me why /author/Chris gives a 404 error? Thanks in advance.

    You can try adding the following code to your sidebar, and see what link it generates for chris:

    <?php wp_list_authors(); ?>

    I'm getting this as well.

    <?php wp_list_authors(); ?> lists invalid links for me, but the ?author= syntax works.

    Chris, I see both your links don't work.

    I was wondering if you (or anyone else) have figured out the solution to this problem. I believe it has something to do with the installation of wordpress through Fantastico.

    Perhaps another wordpress fundi would be so kind as to help us out!
