Author page 404 error and no author pic

    In my posts,at the top and bottom, it lists my personal name correctly as the author. However, when I click on my name it takes me to the following link with a 404 error:

    http://deceptivefood.com/author/Deceptive%20Food/

    Shouldn’t my personal name be in this url? Why is it returning an error?

    I have checked my user profile settings a million times, and they are all my personal name.

    I’m using Yoast SEO plugin and heard that may be the problem?

    You can see an example post at:

    I also do not know why my pic does not show in the author bio box. I have my Google+ link in my user settings, and thought that is where the image comes from?

    Try disabling all your plugins (maybe start with just Yoast if you think thats the problem) and see if it fixes the issue.

    Okay thank you. I did disable Yoast and it did not work. I will disable the others and try that too, but I only have a couple. I will reply if that resolves the problem. Any other ideas?

    Could it be my theme?
    Can I change my theme temporarily just to see if that is the issue and return to my current theme with the same settings.
    I don’t want to lose my settings if I change themes.
