Author Slug = Username (3 posts)

    Hi there, I was wondering if it's possible to change the URL slug of the author page in the Ryu theme to NOT show the username?

    I've been hacked enough times to know that freely giving out half the login info (via the url slug) is pretty silly, but considering you guys work for Automattic then surely there's something I'm missing like a setting or something?!?

    And if not, is it possible to suppress the author page entirely (a less elegant solution but at least it would have the same effect of not giving out half the login info)


    PS - I absolutely LOVE this theme BTW! Thank you so much!

    This is not a "problem" of the Ryu theme but of WordPress itself.

    I think there are two ways to achieve what you are looking for:

    1. Use default permalinks
    2. Use one of several plugins that can modify the author slug. Just search for "author permalink" or "author slug" in the plugin repository. I haven't actually tried any of those plugins myself but I think this would be the best way to go.

    thanks mighty_mt i did find out about those plugins that change the author slug and have installed one and it works perfectly.

    apologies to ryu theme, but it still seems awfully strange that the WP core would do that by default, don\'t you think?
