[resolved] Some authors don't link to their author pages (5 posts)

    Hi Paul,

    This is a bit of a head-scratcher. Some authors in FRP link to their author pages, while others don't.

    Here's a screenshot of the missing links, and a link to one of those authors' pages. (In other words Tricia Remark isn't linked in the screenshot, and her author page is linked.)

    Any insight you have would be marvelous.

    Thanks again for such a great plugin!

    Hi :).

    FRP uses WordPress's native function to retrieve author name with link or just name. As core function says: "If the author has a homepage set, return an HTML link, otherwise just return the author's name.". So if the author doesn't set homepage in his profile edit page then there will be no link.

    Aaaah, I see. I thought those links were to their local author pages. Is there an easy way to make that happen?

    You can set homepage of each author to your site's url manually or you can add feature request here.

    Great; requested. It's important to my publisher that authors be able to retain a link to their individual websites, but that we drive as much traffic around our site as possible. Thanks!
