User profiles redirecting to home page
I just finished troubleshooting a problem where user profile links would redirect to the site home page. I’m documenting it here in case others run into the same problem.
It turns out there is a conflict with a feature in the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin; both in the free and premium versions. There is a “Disable the author archives” setting under “Titles & Metas” –> “Other” that must be unchecked for bbPress profile links to work.
I have reported the issue to Yoast. They agree that there is a context difference between blog authors and bbPress users that should be accommodated. They have created a GitHub issue for it if anyone wants to follow along or participate.
