    Hi Tom, hope you’re getting some decent sleep these days… I have a nifty snippet that makes the author name in comments link to their profile/author page rather than their website. But i doesn’t seem to work with GP. Would I need to put the comment part of template-tags.php in my child theme’s functions.php and edit that?

    add_filter( 'comment_author', 'my_site_comment_author' );
    function my_site_comment_author( $author ) {
    	global $comment;
    	if ( $comment->user_id )
    		$author = '<a href="' . get_author_posts_url( $comment->user_id ) . '">' . $author . '</a>';
    	return $author;
    }

    Interesting, can you confirm that the same block of code is working in the Twenty Sixteen theme?

    Nope not working in any theme? What piece of template-tag.php code would I need to use this code below to link the author name to their profile page? (ALL users are authors)

    
    <a href ="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/?author=<?php echo $comment->user_id ?>"><?php echo $comment->comment_author?></a>

    Found it…

    paste the follow part of template-tags.php into your child theme functions.php
    I replaced <?php printf( '<cite class="fn">%s</cite>', get_comment_author_link() ); ?>
    with <a href ="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/?author=<?php echo $comment->user_id ?>"><?php echo $comment->comment_author?></a>

    if ( ! function_exists( 'generate_comment' ) ) :
    /**
     * Template for comments and pingbacks.
     *
     * Used as a callback by wp_list_comments() for displaying the comments.
     */
    function generate_comment( $comment, $args, $depth ) {
    	$GLOBALS['comment'] = $comment;
    	$args['avatar_size'] = apply_filters( 'generate_comment_avatar_size', 50 );
    
    	if ( 'pingback' == $comment->comment_type || 'trackback' == $comment->comment_type ) : ?>
    
    	<li id="comment-<?php comment_ID(); ?>" <?php comment_class(); ?>>
    		<div class="comment-body">
    			<?php _e( 'Pingback:', 'generatepress' ); ?> <?php comment_author_link(); ?> <?php edit_comment_link( __( 'Edit', 'generatepress' ), '<span class="edit-link">', '</span>' ); ?>
    		</div>
    
    	<?php else : ?>
    
    	<li id="comment-<?php comment_ID(); ?>" <?php comment_class( empty( $args['has_children'] ) ? '' : 'parent' ); ?>>
    		<article id="div-comment-<?php comment_ID(); ?>" class="comment-body">
    			<footer class="comment-meta">
    				<?php if ( 0 != $args['avatar_size'] ) echo get_avatar( $comment, $args['avatar_size'] ); ?>
    				<div class="comment-author-info">
    					<div class="comment-author vcard">
    						<a href ="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/?author=<?php echo $comment->user_id ?>"><?php echo $comment->comment_author?></a>

    								<?php printf( _x( '%1$s at %2$s', '1: date, 2: time', 'generatepress' ), get_comment_date(), get_comment_time() ); ?>
    							</time>
    						</a>
    						<?php edit_comment_link( __( 'Edit', 'generatepress' ), '<span class="edit-link">| ', '</span>' ); ?>
    						<?php
    						comment_reply_link( array_merge( $args, array(
    							'add_below' => 'div-comment',
    							'depth'     => $depth,
    							'max_depth' => $args['max_depth'],
    							'before'    => '<span class="reply">| ',
    							'after'     => '</span>',
    						) ) );
    						?>
    					</div><!-- .comment-metadata -->
    				</div><!-- .comment-author-info -->
    
    				<?php if ( '0' == $comment->comment_approved ) : ?>
    				<p class="comment-awaiting-moderation"><?php _e( 'Your comment is awaiting moderation.', 'generatepress' ); ?></p>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    			</footer><!-- .comment-meta -->

    endif; // ends check for generate_comment()
