WordPress Snippets at WPcustoms

Change /author/ base url

Default permalink is yoursite.com/author/username. This function changes the /author/ page to something custom. We changed it in this example to yoursite.com/staff/username. Do not forget to re-save your permalinks after this snippet is added to flush the rewrites.
