Well, Dude - sign me up!
Im stuck at that same issue here. And a Google released their Google+ Autorship program, i`m sure such topics will no starts to appear ofter on that SupportBlog.
Issue in short terms:
We havee a G+ account. And our website. We must create a 2-way links.... everything is pretty easy here.
Aside from the fact, that Google (how? why?) "detects" that the site is running on a WordPress engine.
And, since the Google is an uber smart folk - the crawler tryes to set a link "triangle"
1) G+ profile
2) our website content (post\page\article)
3) and the "Author page" on the wordpress.
And here comes the problems, because half of the Kriesi theme just demolished the "author Bio Page".
Here you can check the real examle (my website):
1) We go onto http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets
Its an easy tool to "check" the way of Autorship works\dont works.
There if we type:
a) (index page of website) http://imba-shopping.com/ - we will see: Verified: Authorship markup is verified for this page.
b) (page\section link) http://imba-shopping.com/shopping-columns-view/ - SAME HERE. we will see: Verified: Authorship markup is verified for this page.
(Those two pages actualy receive the G+ "verification" just because i`ve inserted the back-link onto my G+ account in one of the Widgets. And seems like the Google "see" that back link.
But here goes the trycky part: Verification of POSTS.....
If you go on http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets agai, and test this post link....: http://imba-shopping.com/31-tokyoflash-watches/
You wont see a magical "AUTORSHIP VERIVIED" line. Because somehow, when Google check nor a oage, but "post" in wordpress, its automatically link it with a "author profile" inside our wordpress.....
but since there is no such page.... Google cant find that page = cant find a Snippet backLInk = cant verify the Autorship.
I believe, thats the most straightforward way of solving this is just to modify onto "WHERE" the Author page will be linked.
I mean, where must be a way to modify the ahref link to where crawler will be sended when it will check "autor" page.
And of the most super way is to link it right back to the G+ account.
Example: We read our post, and at the end of it there is a line: Comments, tags, category, author XXXX"
If XXXX will lead to G+ = that will solve oll the issues for everyone.
See, i`ve got the solution for you)) so, just give us the php code back Dude ))))
PS: I have that issue on Corona theme, buts thats isnt really matters.
