In my settings menu I have my name to publicly display as Emily, which it does on blog posts but on my author archives it shows my username.
want it to show:
I don’t want my username in the url of my archives for obvious reasons.
One of the first things I was told to do for security purposes was change the user account “admin” to a different name but if anyone can find out my username by looking at my archive url there is still a security breech.
I don’t want to use a plug-in. I would rather add code somewhere to change the user nicename. I tried doing it through my phpmyadmin on my hosting but it messed up my whole site.
Since it is most likely that this issue is related to the author.php template in your theme, and we cannot discern what theme is in use based on your posted info., we can only then ask that you contact your theme dev. for support on how to do this…
