It therefore allows us to modify the author’s link in order to create a redirect anywhere. You can define a different link for each author, or a link for all the authors.
In addition, it also makes it possible to hide the identifier of the author when hovering with the mouse.
Yoast SEO (which I really like) allows author archives to be disabled to avoid duplicate content, but unfortunately that links to the homepage which in my view is not very good for user experience. By clicking on the author’s link, we expect to be redirected to a personalized page “about the author” for example. Well, that’s exactly what WP Custom Author URL can do.
Suggestion : if there was a checkbox to define the opening of the link in a new tab (in the case of an external link, Twitter for example), and a field to customize the “title” attribute of the link , that would be really excellent 🙂
I hope this plugin will stay up to date for a very long time 😉
Good work !
