Change default Author Slug

In your functions.php to change the default author slug “author” to whatever you want like “masters” for instance you would do this:

// Change URL Slug from author to masters

function new_author_base() {

    global $wp_rewrite;

    $author_slug = 'masters';

    $wp_rewrite->author_base = $author_slug;

}

add_action('init', 'new_author_base');
