The author page in the theme seems to be broken. It shows “$authordata->display_name” on the author page instead of the actual value of the variable. The problem is also with the “$authordata->user_url” property. The problem seems to be in the theme code on line 4 of author.php and I suspect so because my syntax highlighter doesn’t shade the variable in the color that it shades variables that work. I tried playing around with changing double quotes to single quotes and vice versa (as it seemed to fix the highlighting) but only managed to break the theme entirely.
I haven’t touched the main theme code in any permanent way but I am using a child theme. I haven’t overridden author.php, though. I have translated part of the theme with Poedit, but I’m pretty sure that shouldn’t have an effect on this in any way, unless there’s a major error in the code.
I’m not using any author plugins.
My theme version is 1.1.4 and WordPress hasn’t suggested an update for it so I think it’s the latest one. I’m using WordPress version 3.6 and I haven’t updated it to 3.6.1 yet because this is a production site and all my plugins haven’t promised 100% compatibility yet.
