This snippet will allow you to change the default WordPress author URL base from ie: “”, to ie.””. In this example we are changing the slug to “profile”, but you can change this to anything that you would like.

1. Add this code to your functions.php

   add_action('init', 'wp_custom_author_urlbase');
   function wp_custom_author_urlbase() {
      global $wp_rewrite;
      $author_slug = 'profiles'; // the new slug name
      $wp_rewrite->author_base = $author_slug;

2. The permalink settings have to be updated after adding the above snippet to your functions.php. This is simply done by navigating to: settings > permalink and click “Save Changes”.
