    Hi everyone,

    I'm working with Thematic and creating my first child theme. I just came across a problem. In my blog posts, when I click on the author name, it doesn't give me a list of posts by the author. It tells me that it is not found. It does this with the list of blog posts, and on a single blog post page. The url it is giving me is ../author/Firstname Lastname/ After clicking the link, the url is ../author/Firstname%20Lastname/

    Does anyone know why this might be happening?

    Thanks!

    No one knows why or has any ideas? I did move the blog posts from one WP blog to this current one where I'm having the problem. Could this be why?

    Well I finally found a solution!

    If you're having this same problem as I did, go into PHPMyAdmin, and in the users table, change the "user_nicename" to what it should be. For me, it had a space between the first and last name, which caused the problem in the link. I removed the space, and sure enough the link works and takes you to the archive of posts by that author as it should have from the beginning. I don't know how it got a space there as it doesn't seem to be controlled/changed by the first/last/nickname options in the user profile, but this solution works.

    :)
