I've tried a bunch of things but cannot find a solution that works.
I want my site to have the structure:
mysite.com/ = homepage mysite.com/blogs/ = blog archive mysite.com/blogs/year/ = blog archive (in a specific year) mysite.com/blogs/year/month/ = blog archive (in a specific month) mysite.com/blogs/year/month/postname = blog post mysite.com/authors/ = authors archive mysite.com/authors/nicename = author profile mysite.com/customposttype/ = custom post type archive mysite.com/customposttype/postname = custom post type post
/blogs/%year%/%month%/%postname%/ set as the permalink structure, everything works correctly except the authors part. It forces it to
mysite.com/blogs/authors/nicename, which is not desireable, since most authors will be making custom post types and not blogs.
Some posts I checked here but without the right answer:
