WordPress MU/BP Integration: post_author_link issue
I have just completed integrating bbPress into my WordPress MU installations. Buddypress is also installed, but I have not taken other steps in order to integrate Buddypress with bbPress significantly. It works really well: when a user signs up on WordPress, they appear as a user in bbPress.
I have only run into one problem, which is this.
On post.php in my theme file, I use <?php post_author_link(); ?> as a link the author’s profile. By my understanding, this should link to the Buddypress profile without any additional set up. Instead, when I click the link it goes to the post author’s site as defined in the user’s Profile in the WordPress Admin Dashboard. I want post_author_link to go to their Buddypress profile, not an external website. Obviously their Buddypress profiles are more important since the site focuses on community. Linking to an external site will detract from that quite greatly.
Thank you for any help on this matter.
