This question already has an answer here:

I changed my user profile name with WP-Optimize from 'admin' to 'indie' (not really 'indie', just to show you better) but author page still is available only trough example.com/author/admin - not example.com/author/indie. Is there anything I missed?

Greetings, .wired
