Somewhere along the way I deleted my Author Page. Is there a way to put one back up?
I still have my Symbiocard, but no direct way to access it through the site. When a person clicks on my "Author Page" under my profile it goes to an Oops! page, instead of an Author Page.


Any suggestions?

When I hover over your author link there's some really random characters that show up where your username should.

Your link should read

I went to check, and that is my correct link. The issue I've been having, is that I don't know how to replace my deleted Author Page with a new working one. Once I figure out how to put up a new Author page, that link should get to it.

Try looking under your word press users area and edit you.  There is some author page stuff on there.  If it isn't filled out maybe if you do it'll recreate it?  Though I'm not 100% sure.

Did you try going to Pages and creating a new page with that url? Did you look in the trash of your pages, maybe its there? Im just throwing things out...i dont really have a good answer. I deleted a bunch of stuff when i was starting out, but that page wasnt one of them so i dont really know.

I trashed the page a few days ago, so it's not there anymore. I have been trying to create a new Author Page. I've tried adding several variations of the permalink, but haven't gotten one to connect up.

If you are using yeost try resetting it and see if that helps

I'm not using yeost yet. I'm considering installing the updated Symbiostock 2.5.6 theme to see if that will help. I don't know if that will alter the settings/customizations I've made. I'll look for more advice here, before I do. (Or start pressing buttons randomly, which is in my nature)

I have a feeling that the solution is a lot simpler than the way I'm going about it.

Did you create a child them for your customisations or do them to the main symbiostock theme.  If the former (which is the recommended way) then you should be okay when you update to 2.5.6

I don't think the author page is an actual page but a generated one like the image pages as I wanted to create a link to it recently and had to find a way around (which I have done in the footer of my front page)  as it does not seem to exist in the pages section of wordpress.

You have some very cute food in your portfolio  :)

Thank you. I've been enjoying adding them to the Symbiostock network.

I am using the child theme. So, I can give that a try. I feel better knowing it's a generated page. I'll keep at it, until it's working again.

I just put a link to my Symbiocard info as my artist profile description, until I get the author page back.

I've been able to create a basic replacement Author page and fill it with the right code. It's at http://www.foodvectors.com/author-page/

The page is hand edited, so it doesn't update its one values, but at least it's accessible.

I'll work on getting the actual link on the image pages to direct to that new page, next. Right now, it's a URL in my profile info. After that, I think I may need to alter my Symbiocard, so that it will direct to the right page.

I was given the suggestion that my issue could be that my Wordpress username has an odd character in it. If that's the issue, I'll have to work around the original link, until I figure out how to change it everywhere.

As an update, my original author page is working now. If anyone else has this issue, here's what worked for me:

In Wordpress, I went to Users and created a new user. I gave that user Administrator privileges too. After that, my original author page link started working again. After that, I set that new user back to subscriber only privileges. It works fine now.

I hope this works, for others, if they have the same issue.
