How to link to BB member profile instead of author profile?

  • stevie79


    I’m wanting to basically put at the end of an article, that’s written by somebody:

    Article written by [link to buddypress profile]

    I’ve seen a few threads on this, yet it’s never mentioned where certain code needs to be placed.

    I’ve not found a way to do it with any theme, even Twenty Twelve etc.

    Also looking for this! And also making it so that when you click on the author, it redirects to that person’s buddypress profile page



    Yes ottiya.

    It’ll be hyperlinked – when someone clicks it, they then see that person’s buddypress profile.

    Basically, instead of it going to an author’s page (which lists all posts written by that author), it instead like you mentioned, goes to the Buddypress profile of that member… so or



    Hi, the easiest way to do this is to filter the WP “author link” so that it redirects to the member’s BP profile:

    If you want to change the template used by an article, it will depend on your theme. For instance, if you were using twentyseventeen and wanted to add the author’s link to the meta section at the end of a post, it looks like you’d want to create a new version of the function twentyseventeen_entry_footer(). So you could copy that function to bp-custom.php or your child theme’s functions.php file, then add the function the_author_posts_link() where you want the link to appear. in any case, adding the author link to a post is a common WP task, so I’m guessing there are lots of tutorials about how to manage that part.
