How do I amend the fixed “author” part in the URL?


I'm needing to have custom URLs for authors so for example mysite.com/team/johndoe would be the eventual URL. This should list that particular user, but I was hoping to use the author.php template to do so.

The following gives further details, but it doesn't really clarify whether this is possible as it's not designed to: http://codex.wordpress.org/Author_Templates

Is there any fancy way of doing URL rewriting for this case?

Why does the default site.com/author/johndoe not work for your situation? – GavinR Aug 22 '11 at 18:08
A client requirement, basically! – Kezzer Aug 23 '11 at 7:42

Take a look at this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-htaccess-control/. It has support for rewriting author urls. Should be a quick and easy fix.
