Support » Theme: Primer » WordPress username displayed in blog posts

    The URL for the author name of a blog post includes the WordPress username of the author. This is not good for security reasons since this provides would-be hackers with useful information. Perhaps the URL could instead include the WordPress nickname or, even better, the author’s publicly displayed name.

    Hello @pluto11,

    I understand you’re wanting to change the URL slug for your authors to add another layer of protection to your site. Unfortunately this is a limitation of WordPress core. There are some plugins that can change the URL slug for authors like https://wordpress.org/plugins/edit-author-slug/.

    I hope this helps you out!

    Regards,
    Daniel F.
