Is there a way to link to the authors profile page?

At the moment i can access the authors profile by visiting the url like this:


Is there a function that i could use to show this link regardless if the permalinks are changed?

Thanks in advanced.

if i am guessing it right you need to use <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?> function to link to the author page

Note: Remember the function will only be useful if you want to link to the author of a post not a particular user

This article on the Wordpress Codex explains about author profiles. I think you may want the_author_link() which you could set up to link whatever you want.
