Troubleshooting Author Profile Pages

By default, both the WordPress core and PublishPress Authors provide author profile pages. This is one URL where you can find all the posts written by an author.

Some plugins can interfere with these author pages. This guide will help you troubleshoot if your pages are not working correctly.


Are your URLs are incorrect?

If your URLs don't match the format you want, you can update the URLs using this technique.


Do you have Yoast SEO installed?

If you are using the Yoast SEO plugin, this may be disabling your author pages.

  • Go to SEO > Search Appearance in the WordPress admin menu.
  • Click the “Archives” tab.
  • Make sure that “Author archives” is set to “Enabled”.
