Support » Fixing WordPress » Author Template Not Working and Gives 404 Error

  • Hi i am working on a blog that has multiple Custom Post Types. There are also multiple Authors.

    What i simply want is that when an Author name is clicked in a post, it goes to that Authors page listing all the Posts by that Author regardless of which Custom Post Type the Post belongs to (so display All Posts from All Custom Post Types by that Author).

    However when i click on an Author’s link (created using the_author_posts_link template tag), it goes to the url as it should but outputs a 404 error and the HTML layout of the page is all over the place! I have an author.php template but its just not using it for some reason.

    I’m sure it’s something quite simple but i’m a beginner with wordpress so any help would be much appreciated.
