Turn avatar into link to profile in an author box

    @3rdaxis

    I would like to turn this line of code

    <?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( 'user_email' ), 68 ); ?>

    Into clickable avatar that would lead to an authors profile page.

    I have tried to look this up, but any results on trying to make this work lead to page errors or linking back to the current post the author box is on.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Just wrap a <a href...> around that statement. That will turn the avatar into a link.

    I have already tried that. Its turns into a link, but that does not make it go to the authors profile page.

    Im not trying to make it go to a specific profile. When it is clicked i need it to go to profile belonging to the the persons avatar.

    <a href="/members/<?php echo bp_core_get_username( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ); ?>/">
    // put your avatar here
    </a>

    @3rdaxis just to note that’ll work on that page only. If you want to link an avatar that’s on a member’s profile page or in the members loop for example you’ll need to use a slightly different way of getting the user’s ID.
