[resolved] Potential security risk when selecting See All posts (3 posts)

    When selecting the Latest Posts tab and then selecting See All posts I have noticed that the title for the page displaying all of the blog posts is my WP login user name rather than my Bio user name.

    This is clearly a serious security risk for all users.

    Can you please advise how I can edit the title of this page as a matter or urgency.

    Hi Robert,
    From what I can tell by looking at the plugin code, the plugin should not be causing this. The plugin uses get_author_posts_url to link to the page with the author's posts.

    The problem may be somewhere in your template files (e.g. author.php ?).
    Still, this seems strange. Normally, the public name is returned in the title for author's pages.

    This is definitely not caused by our plugin, it doesn't control anything in author archives page.
