Support » Plugins and Hacks » Problems with author's slug
3 years, 3 months ago
I’m kinda newbie. I’m using GrandCollege theme together with Author Avatars plugin and I’m having trouble with author’s slug in my site.
I don’t know if it’s caused by authoravatars plugin or if there’s something wrong with any $curauth variable used in my theme.
All the user profile links point to /root?author_name instead of pointing to the correct /root/?author=[id]
I want my users profile link to point to their [id] and not to their name. If you enter this page:
you’ll see that every profile link is pointing to
when they should be pointing to
just as the correct profiles are showing:
So I do not understand where the problem is. Can you help me?
The plug-in doesn’t change the URL just show what WordPress provides So I look to the theme
I use get_author_posts_url( $author_id ); to get the URL
test on the a default theme
please post what you find
I found the problem, although I don’t know what really causes it.
Apparently, plugins Author Avatars and CoAuthor Plus have some uncompatibilities. When I activate the last one, Author Avatars starts to point to wrong links.
Thanks for the tip I will have look and what is going on 🙂
