author page is blank

Aug 27, 2009 at 10:39 PM

I am trying to integrate BlogEngine with an existing site. I was able to get most features working, but when I click on an author's name, instead of seeing that author's posts I see a blank page. It's not completely blank because it's showing the stuff from the master page, but the posts are definitely missing. Also, the page background that is set by CSS works on all other pages but doesn't appear on this page. Since the author page doesn't seem to exist physically, I'm not sure what to do.

I think the reason I'm seeing a blank author page is that I don't have the blog at default.aspx. I'm integrating with an existing site and the blog is not on the home page. When I renamed my blog page as default.aspx, the author page then showed posts. However, I really need the blog front page to be something other than default.aspx. Is there a workaround for this? Do I need to edit the source, and if so, can anyone point me in the right direction?
