Support » Themes and Templates » [Resolved] The author link points to wrong link… Why?
8 years ago
for some reason
<?php the_author_link(); ?>
is linking to /author/authorname
instead of the URL listed in the WP Admin Interface -> Author Profile as described here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_author_link
I want to link to the URL stored in the Profile. How do I do use the_author_link or $curauth->user_url; ?
and an older theme by Becca Wei
found the answer on my own…
i forgot to change it in The Loop!
should work now
The the_author_link function is supposed to link to the /author/authorname page. If you want the author’s url, as set in their profile, then use the_author_url instead.
