Add a rel=”me” link to the head of an author page, if the author has a website set in their profile.

Author rel=me Link

This plugin, when activated, will add a <link> to the <head> of an Author page with rel="me", if that author has set a “Website” in their profile.

This can be useful for things like Mastodon URL verification.

Example

If an author has set their website to https://www.example.com, this plugin will add the following HTML to the <head> on their author page:

<link rel="me" href="https://social.example/@evelyn" />

To verify with Mastodon etc., the author would need to use the URL to their Author archive page, typically something like https://www.your-site.example/author/evelyn.
