    I am no php programmer either

    It does look to me though that you are calling the Actual Author ID which is different than the field value.

    (the_author_ID() will return the actual ID

    Where you are putting this and what you are trying to apply it to will have an affect as well.

    Perhaps some more info? We have some php guys that hang around here that could help if they know what they are looking to do :slight_smile:
