Remove Author Page Completely.

How do I completely remove the Author page? I see plugins that do this, but it seems it would be easier than that to just shut them off.

    Hello Riot,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    The "author" page is actually a native WP feature and the way it's displayed depends on the theme. Most themes simply display an archive of posts of given author and some themes put additional "bio" and information there.

    The simplest way to completely disable the "author page" would be actually to use e.g. this plugin:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-author-pages/

    Other solution could be to add custom rules to .htaccess to "301 redirect" browser from any "author" page to other page of choice but I'd just go for a plugin as it's the simplest and a bit more "elastic" solution.

    If you have further questions on this, let me know please and I'll be happy to assist.

    Best regards,
    Adam
