Author Link Customization


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi guys,

 

I am trying to customize the author link that is by default included below the post title by changing its URL as well as including the rel="me" tag. You have mentioned (here http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/24354-change-author-page/?hl=author) that changing the author URL would require significant coding. However, is there a way around it? Can't it be done without too much coding (simply customizing part of the post loop)?

 

The reason why I need to change it is Google. In order to get rich snippet excerpts from Google, you need to point to a page that includes your Google+ profile. And I guess more people will soon have the same problem.

 

Thanks for your time and help!

Hi Simon, thanks for the answer. Initially, I did add the Google+ link in my profile but it didn't change anything. What worked however, is to customize the Author page to include the author section (the biography etc.). There, the Google+ link also shows up. Thank you again for the help.

You can add google page links to your author profile already. Just go to the profile edit area in wordpress and add your google page there.
