the_author_posts_link() problems (2 posts)

    Hi All,

    I have a strange problem in my site. The author link returned by wordpress in the wordpress theme using the_author_posts_link is something like 'mydomain.com/author/'. Its not concatenating the author name to the URL. What could be the problem?

    The function is returning correct URL if the default permanent link structure is used. i.e, 'mydomain.com/?author=1708'.

    Just for your information, as the wordpress won't allow unicode usernames all my usernames are empty and the name i s available in display_name field of the user info. This could be the problem also.

    Is there anyway to get the author link with ID instead of the name?
    i.e, 'mydomain.com/author/1708/' instead of 'mydomain.com/author/myname/'?

    This might also solve my problem.

    I'm having this problem after upgrading to 2.6. wp_list_authors isn't working either.

    I'm getting damned sick of wordpress with all the problems we've been having.
