I did manage to find a workaround though. By editing my theme, instead of the plugin, I can include this: <a href="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'uri', true); ?>" rel="author"><?php the_author(); ?></a>
and now I get the intended results. the author’s name is shown, via the custom field, along with a link to the custom author URI.
I thought I would share this in case anybody knows how to fix the plugin, or in case anybody wants to try my workaround.
Is the problem here that custom author links are not working at all with some themes?
I tried this plugin with Woo Canvas, which automaticlly creates linked author names that go to an archive list of all posts by that author. When this plugin is used, the author name is overridden with the custom byline name, and the custom author link is applied as a *redirect* that happens AFTER going to the author archive for the user actually assigned as the post’s author. Not ideal, but it works.
