    It was this way at one time. However, if an author hasn’t posted anything, then there really is nothing that a search engine would show for the page.

    In my case, I’m doing quite a lot with users on their author page. Even if they haven’t posted, I’m still displaying their first name, last name, user_url, user_registered date, and description (a lot of which they can fill out on the profile edit screen) so it would still be cool for search engines to list their page as it has lots of useful info on it

    Are you creating a specific page for the author or you have a template page for authors? If it is simply a page then it should be including via the “pages” rendering of the plugin.

    I’m using the author template. So for example /mytheme/author.php

    Henry the new version has na option to include authors that have no posts. That should work for you.

    Great thanks Mike, I’ll update this evening!

    Did this work for you?

    It worked a treat, I just checked the setting on the admin page and voila! Thanks Mike 😀
