Create the_author_link()

Creating a link to a post author's website is kinda a pain as we have to test to see if they have a URL set or not.

So, I propose the_author_link().

  • Keywords bg|commit added

This looks good to go.

Patch rebased against trunk.

Might create some confusion with get_author_link (which should have been get_author_post_link). Should we call it something different? Perhaps get_author_home_link()?

Actually, I'll deprecate get_author_link() and add get_author_posts_link().

#4 @ryan

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

(In [4139]) Deprecate get_author_link(). Add get_author_posts_url() and the_author_link(). Props Viper007Bond and westi. fixes #2423
