Links on Author Page

maaliskuu 30, 12:27 pm

I recommend that author chats and author interviews have a link on the author’s page to the chats and interviews. I was trying to find one this week and Abigail helped me find it (it was from 2009) and I could never have found it myself. Had there been a link on the author’s page I could have found it lickety split and all by myself. Thanks.

Populating the 'Links' box on the author page depends entirely on members' contributions.

See the history on, say, Hilary Mantel's author page for contributions by a number of members. Click on the little pencil icon to add links.

Keeping up those links is one of the kinder things that authors can do to contribute to site data.

If you're referring to chats and interviews here on LT, make sure the About section is filled in, then it will appear on the author's profile.
If no one fills that it, then you have to go dig.

Yep, as pointed out there's already an option for that, it just needs to be populated. It even has it's own category, but even when there isn't one, you can add useful links under 'other'. I habitually use it to put up a link to Project Gutenberg author page in cases where works are in public domain and available there, for instance.

Edit: ah, perhaps we misunderstood and gilroy's comment is the one on point
