I am creating a localized instance of WordPress and one can easily configure the category and tag parts of the URL but I cannot find anything similar for authors. So for instance I get this:
which would be appropriate in my language. How to achieve that?
(And BTW, can “borekb” be replaced with something like “borek-bernard”, i.e. full name slug instead of username?)
Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.
Use the plugin Edit Author Slug:
This plugin allows an Admin to change the author slug (a.k.a. – nicename), without having to actually enter the database. You can also change the Author Base (the ‘/author/’ portion of the author URLs). Two new fields will be added to your Dashboard. The “Edit Author Slug” field can be found under Users > Your Profile or Users > Authors & Users (Users > Users in WP 3.0). The “Author Base” field can be found under Settings > Permalinks.
