Author template doesn't work, always show 404 page.
I have uploaded Author.php template file in the theme folder. But somehow it is not working. Every time I get 404 page.Currently I am using coogee theme for my website(www.code4reference.com). I don’t know whats going wrong. Do I need to update some other file once I upload author.php in theme folder. My author.php looks as following.
<?php /** * The template for displaying Author Archive pages. * * @package WordPress * @subpackage Twenty_Ten * @since Twenty Ten 1.0 */ get_header(); ?> <div id="container"> <div id="content" role="main"> <?php /* Queue the first post, that way we know who * the author is when we try to get their name, * URL, description, avatar, etc. * * We reset this later so we can run the loop * properly with a call to rewind_posts(). */ if ( have_posts() ) the_post(); ?> <h1 class="page-title author"><?php printf( __( 'Author Archives: %s', 'twentyten' ), "<span class='vcard'><a class='url fn n' href='" . get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) . "' title='" . esc_attr( get_the_author() ) . "' rel='me'>" . get_the_author() . "</a></span>" ); ?></h1> <?php // If a user has filled out their description, show a bio on their entries. if ( get_the_author_meta( 'description' ) ) : ?> <div id="entry-author-info"> <div id="author-avatar"> <?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( 'user_email' ), apply_filters( 'twentyten_author_bio_avatar_size', 60 ) ); ?> </div><!-- #author-avatar --> <div id="author-description"> <h2><?php printf( __( 'About %s', 'twentyten' ), get_the_author() ); ?></h2> <?php the_author_meta( 'description' ); ?> </div><!-- #author-description --> </div><!-- #entry-author-info --> <?php endif; ?> <?php /* Since we called the_post() above, we need to * rewind the loop back to the beginning that way * we can run the loop properly, in full. */ rewind_posts(); /* Run the loop for the author archive page to output the authors posts * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file * called loop-author.php and that will be used instead. */ get_template_part( 'loop', 'author' ); ?> </div><!-- #content --> </div><!-- #container --> <?php get_sidebar(); ?> <?php get_footer(); ?>
A long shot guess. Ensure the filename is all lower case. Most server file systems are case sensitive.
the file name is in lower case. But still I am not able to see it.
Can you post a link to the error page you’re getting? Mainly, I just want to see the actual link you’re using to get to the error page. There’s a lot that can go wrong here, so we’ll need to narrow it down a bit.
