NO BUG: Dynamic Author Page Link

Using dynamic data won’t link to author pages correctly, however it will work in a text field as shown in the image attached.

Hi Ben,
Thanks so much for your report and welcome to the forum!

The :link filter turns the author name itself into a link, so if you insert {author_name:link} within the URL field of a link, you would get a link within a link, which is not allowed. Accordingly, this is not a bug.

By the way, the standard slug for the author page uses the nickname, which you can use as follows within the link URL: .../author/{author_meta:nickname}

Best regards,

Thanks Timmse! I’d noticed a few people in the fb group had problems implementing this, i’ll be sure to share it!
