Support » Fixing WordPress » /?author=id redirects to /author/username [security issue]

  • Hi,

    I use 2.3.1 and have pretty permalinks enabled. When I try to invoke the loop by author id the url redirects to the permalink version, which reveals the matching username.

    Example:

    blog.com/?author=id REDIRECTS TO blog.com/author/username

    I don’t want to advertise my username, but at the same time I want clean permalinks.

    Is it possible to disable this?, OR instead have it redirect to:

    blog.com/author/author_id

    Appreciate any help

  • I’m also interested in the answer to this question. I can’t seem to find any leads on how to change the author URLs. I also do not want to use the author username, but instead would like to use the nickname.

    Thanks for any insight!

    I’m searching for an answer to this, too.
