    I’ve bumped the plugin to version 0.6, adding a filter wpwhosonline_author_link to allow for customization of this link. By default, it uses get_author_posts_url().

    You can add something like this in a plugin or your theme’s functions.php:

    function mytheme_whosonline_link( $link, $user ) {
        return '<a href="/user/' . $user->user_login . '">' . esc_html( $user->display_name ) . '</a>';
    add_filter( 'whosonline_author_link', 'mytheme_whosonline_link', 10, 2 );

    I’m sorry but I’m not understanding how to implement this. I’ve tried a few things and simply screwed up my site. I luckily had saved the old code and reverted back.

    Where do I go from here? Most of my users don’t have POSTS, in fact I don’t know many blogs that do. A more useful function would be the ability to view someone’s profile when clicking their name, preferably only by logged in users to protect privacy.

    Thoughts? Help?

    Thank you!

    I assume it’s pretty common in P2 blogs for teams, where the whole point is that any user can create a post. That aside, the idea of a “profile” is different from blog to blog, particularly if you’re using something like bbPress.

    The code sample I included above should work in your theme’s functions.php, though it’s hard to prescribe a “best” location. If you want to try adding it somewhere and reply again with your specific error, I can help you debug the issue.
