How to display user profile info when username is clicked
I’ve been searching for a solution on this for hours, to no avail, and it seems like such a simple thing:
All I want to do is have my website show other users’ basic info when I click their name in a forum post.
For example, if I write a forum post, another user should be able to click on my name and see the profile info that I’ve added to my profile in the backend–e.g. “Contact Info” and “About Yourself” (email address, website, biographical info)–on a page on my site.
Right now, when they click on my name, or when I click on another forum user’s name, it sends to our 404 page.
What gives? Pretty much any site I’ve ever used that has multiple users allows you to click their name to see their bio. It seems insane that WordPress/bbPress doesn’t have this basic feature. And I haven’t even been able to find a plugin or any kinds of codes to make this happen. I’ve found all kinds of plugins that allow you to add additional user fields (like social media info) or prettier front-end login pages, but nothing that just displays another user’s contact/bio info.
Thanks in advance for your help.
