Support » Fixing WordPress » One Author Link Broken

  • Resolved aptdesignonline



    I have designed and developed a new blog – . There is a link under each post for the author. However, one author’s link to their Author Archives template is completely broken.

    It was the orginal admin user that I created for this account, though I have changed the nickname for this user. This author/user is now name “GymStaff”.

    When you click on the author link it tries to redirect you to “author/The Inner Circle Gym” – and you get a 404. However, even if you manually change it to “author/GymStaff” you still get a 404 page.

    Anyone have any suggestions about this? Is something stuck in my database?

    I added another user and things seem to be ok with him.

    Thanks for any help you might have!

  • The only thing I can figure out is that the username originally was created with spaces in it.

    I edited the user_nicename in my mySQL database using this tutorial and it works now!

    Thank you so much for responding with the solution to your problem. I had the same thing happen. The links tutorial above worked to resolve the problem.
