    Known Issues
    Author pages are not working if the author does not exist in WordPress. In my WordPress child theme, I modified my post area to link to the author's website instead of a WP created author's page.

    Permalink structure should never start with a word-based permalink keywords (%category%, %tag%, %postname%, or %author%). This adds to the number of queries and will slow the site. Start with a number in the structure. Day and Name are working on my site.
