Default author slug displaying 404

If you’re looking for some help, it’s important to provide as much context as possible so that people are able to assist you. Try to always mention:

  • What version of Ghost are you using? 2.22
  • What configuration? Ghost in Docker: Docker
  • What browser? Brave, Firefox, Edge, etc.
  • What errors or information do you see in the console? 404 on webpage, not sure where I should be looking for console errors… or logs…
  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having? Create a docker-compose.yml file for ghost, docker-compose up -d, go through initial setup, and note the main ‘Author’ link displays a 404.

Here is my routes.yml file:


    permalink: /{slug}/
    template: index

  tag: /tag/{slug}/
  author: /author/{slug}/

I’ve filled out the bio info in my staff page, but I’m listed as a Owner, not sure if this has something to do with it?

@mattgphoto does the user you are trying to open the page for have any posts? Only users which have authored posts will have an author page.
