    First I want to thank you for a great theme. Its smooth, responsive, and simple to manage.

    I’ve been killing myself over the way each post includes a link to an authors profile.

    On my sites the link points to http://azrealtyexperts.com/author/David Starling/ which is not a valid URL.

    How do I either create something (a profile) at that URL or force the post to link to a valid URL somewhere else.

    Other themes seem to do this with no problem and I find it frustrating that my favorite theme doesn’t seem to support this.

    Any guidance that you can provide on how to fix this would be most appreciated.

    Hi Dave,

    This is the first time I’ve encountered this issue.
    I am unable to reproduce the error you are having. I have tested creating new users with spaces but the link that points to the author page works just fine.
    example:

    author name = Ron Angelo
    author url  = author/ron-angelo/

    WordPress automatically adds hyphen to the author url which is the expected behavior.

    Have you recently installed plugins? Have you edited the Database?
    You mentioned that other themes support this. Have you tried temporarily switching to the default theme(TwentyTwelve) and test if the author urls are working?

    If deactivating plugins or changing themes doesn’t fix the issue then this may be a problem with an entry on the database which can be corrected.

    Ron,
    Problem resolved. I verified the problem does exist with other themes and that is when I realized that Asteroid was not my original theme. It however IS my preferred theme. I fixed the problem by creating a new user and then changed all posts and pages to be owned by that user. Thank you for the quick response.
