Greetings Edward,

I’ve been using Scribe ever since I first saw in on Lobster, I
absolutely love it and wanted to say how much it’s improved my reading
experience on Medium.

However, I’ve yet to figure out one irksome detail. When using the
Redirector, clicking on the author’s name (which ordinarily reveals a
list of that author’s posts on Medium) always throws a 404 error for
me. I tried toying with the Redirector config to somehow jigger up an
exception, but I guess I’m just not savvy enough to achieve what I
want.

Anyway, since I gather Scribe doesn’t support this type of Medium page
(yet?), would it be possible to somehow exclude the "medium dot
com/@author" links from redirecting, at least for the time being? As
is, whenever I find an interesting post, the only way to look at the
other posts by the same author is to switch Redirector off.

Hi Stefan, thanks for the kind words!

You might be interested in [LibRedirect]. It's a bit smarter at redirecting you to posts and leaving author pages intact. It's not _perfect_ but it might be just what you're looking for.

I wasn’t aware of the add-on.

It works wonderfully, and even made me aware of alternatives for other services!

Thank you once again for your work and feedback.
