Change author archive to author URL

Hi folks. I don’t know if anyone can help me with this. While I’m using PowerPack for this module, the same would apply for the built in carousel/grid

Currently the author link in a post goes to an archive. Can I change that so it goes to a URL? In this case…specifically the author’s url (setup in user)

I tried this short code…but nothing changed (don’t mind the 2nd shortcode there)

Shortcode is not valid at all but anyway you need to filter the author URL via WP filters specifically author_link filter that was added in 2007.
