Support » Themes and Templates » the_author_posts_link() problems

  • 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 ‘’. 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, ‘’.

    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, ‘’ instead of ‘’?

    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.
