    What is the content of your functions file? (Post code here between backticks or at pastebin.com, please.)

    I have to offer my apologies for my ignorance on this, because I found the problem. There is a setting in the Yoast SEO plugin that you can select to “Disable Author Archives.” The plugin suggests that if you run a one person blog, you should probably tick the checkbox. It then uses a 301 redirect to the homepage when the author template is called.

    To answer Kenneth’s question though, here is what I have in the functions.php file in my child theme:

    <?php
    function my_remove_filter(){
    remove_filter( 'wp_title', 'graphene_title' );
    }
    add_action( 'init', 'my_remove_filter' );
    ?>

    The reason I included that is because it does work perfectly with the aforementioned plugin without having to have the plug-in “Force Rewrites.”

    Thanks again for the help, and once again, I do apologize. Good lesson learned though. Syahir, I rated the theme 5 stars at WordPress also. Just wanted to say thank you for a great theme.

    The plugin suggests that if you run a one person blog, you should probably tick the checkbox.

    And that’s why I think SEO is mostly smoke and mirrors. I’ve read other SEO advice that says you should have a landing page for everything including authors. Obviously, Yoast disagrees.

    it does work perfectly with the aforementioned plugin without having to have the plug-in “Force Rewrites.”

    That’s a good thing. If a few lines of code can eliminate the need for a plugin (especially one which only does one thing), that’s the way to go.

    I have to offer my apologies for my ignorance on this, because I found the problem.

    No need to apologize. We were both ignorant on this. Sharing is how we learn.
