[resolved] Get co-author name to link to different page (4 posts)

    I'm trying to get the author's name which is listed under the article title to link to their bio page under 'The Stable' section of my website.

    For instance I want the name 'Micky Wright' in this article http://www.spultured.com/my-greatest-love-micky-wright/ to link to his bio page here http://www.spultured.com/contributors/micky-wright/

    Under the guest author section their individual website is listed as their bio page and I've tried inserting the tag <?php get_the_author_link(); ?> but it isn't working.

    Hmm, the author's name is linking to their contributor page in the link you've provided. Maybe you discovered that you needed to add the Co-Authors Plus template tags?

    I ended up de-activating Co-Authors Plus and installing Custom Author Byline plugin. However I am not sure if I will continue doing this as I would ideally like to fix the author.php file so that it pulls each co-authors description, image and an archive of their posts, which I'm not sure can be done when a separate page has been created for each author/co-author.
