I'm using the author meta to call up a link outside the loop to the author profile on a multiple author blog.
I was using first_name, but then someone came in and put a nickname and it appeared that's how the author profile page recognized her so I changed it to display name, as she chose her nickname as her display name. Now, another authors profile link isn't working because WP sees his profile as his first name only when his display name is set to first and last. So which string is it that pulls in the author page and displays their posts? (think author link outside the loop)
These are the strings that reference the authors name on the template tag page. I don't even see one for author_link. :/
