  • The code actually reads:

    This article written by <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>

    The link it attempts is but it then goes to the front page.

    See if updating your permalink structure resolves the problem.

    I tried it with the default and it didn’t help. Do suggest a particular structure?

    Not necessarily another structure, but do “Saving Changes” with your existing default structure. Note that with the default structure I would expect your link to be something like:

    When I changed it to the default the link was “” but the same result of going back to the home page in stead of an author page.

    I put it back to my custom structure after that and saved again. So, it is back to the way it started.

    Guessing either something in your .htaccess or a conflict from a plugin (or theme).

    That is what I thought as well, I have deactivated all the plugins I thought could affect it one at a time. The theme works on my dev site. In fact this whole thing works on my local dev site. (it isn’t a perfect copy of my real site) I just can’t find out the difference.

    I will look into the .htaccess file.

    It turned out to be the Robots meta Plugin.

    I wouldn’t have guessed that one.
