Support » Fixing WordPress » Hyperlink in users profile

  • Hey. I’ve searched high and low and can’t find a solution to my problem. After upgrading to 2.0, any hyperlinks (web addresses, email addresses etc) now display incorrectly. They simply display the code.

    It’s similar to what would happen if you typed code into the normal editor — in that case you’re encouraged to put around it and it works fine. However, when putting around a hyperlink within the authors profile, it doesn’t work.

    Example is here —

    See the user profile is displaying the code of the link, but not the link itself.

    The code I’m using here to display the profile is — <?php the_author_description(); ?>

    If anyone had any idea as to what’s going on and why i can’t get hyperlinks displaying correctly, I’d be so greatful!
