iblogpro3 author and comment links

Question

Posted · Report post

Trying to sort out issues regarding both author and user comment links. I??™ve researched quite a bit and tested various plugins. I understand the default now is for a user??™s comment link (from their avatar) to go to their URL, if they have included one in their profile. Is there a way to also have a link (from their display name) to go to their profile page? I??™ve installed the WordPress Users plugin which is nice but it would be nicer if there were a direct way to a user??™s profile page from their comment rather than just from the Member page. Same thing for a post author. http://www.songofsolomonstudy.com/about/members/ http://www.songofsolomonstudy.com/about/members/?uid=1 It??™s amazing how many people I??™ve seen asking for a similar feature with apparently no solution, unless I??™m missing something. The above issues aside, not sure if this is a bug, but I??™m seeing a duplication of the author avatar/info on the author/displayname page, even with show author name turned off and plugins deactivated. http://www.songofsolomonstudy.com/author/admin/ Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks, David

To link to their profile you could try this: `<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/author/<?php echo strtolower(get_the_author_nickname()); ?>`

wow you're very correct; the author.php file is in need of an update. We don't link to it in the theme so most people don't use it. Give us some time and we'll update it. For now, just delete the duplicate code out of author.php

Thanks for the code sample to try. Where should I put it? :)

Anywhere you'd like to link to an author profile. Somewhere in '_posts.php' is probably what you want.
