[SOLVED] How to Add Author Description to Page generated by "%author-posts-link%"

In my old theme, when you clicked on the Author's name in the byline, that took you to an "authors page" that had at the top the bio for the author and then a list of their posts. Not sure how I can do this with this theme. Any help appreciated.

The code in the old theme to grab the 'user_description' was:
PHP Code:
if(get_query_var('author_name')) :
$curauth get_user_by('slug'get_query_var('author_name'));
else :
$curauth get_userdata(get_query_var('author'));

<h3>About<?php echo $curauth->nickname?></h3>
        <dd><a href="<?php echo $curauth->user_url?>"><?php echo $curauth->user_url?></a></dd>
        <dd><?php echo $curauth->user_description?></dd>
  <h3>Posts by <?php echo $curauth->nickname?>:</h3>


        <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>

       <?php $post $posts[0]; // Hack. Set $post so that the_date() works. ?>
       <?php /* If this is a category archive */ if (is_category()) { ?>
        <h3 class="pagetitle">Archive for the <?php single_cat_title(); ?> Category</h3>
       <?php /* If this is a tag archive */ } elseif( is_tag() ) { ?>
        <h3 class="pagetitle">Posts Tagged <?php single_tag_title(); ?></h3>
       <?php /* If this is a daily archive */ } elseif (is_day()) { ?>
        <h3 class="pagetitle">Archive for <?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?></h3>
       <?php /* If this is a monthly archive */ } elseif (is_month()) { ?>
        <h3 class="pagetitle">Archive for <?php the_time('F, Y'); ?></h3>
       <?php /* If this is a yearly archive */ } elseif (is_year()) { ?>
        <h3 class="pagetitle">Archive for <?php the_time('Y'); ?></h3>
      <?php /* If this is an author archive */ } elseif (is_author()) { ?>
        <h3 class="pagetitle">Author Archive</h3>
       <?php /* If this is a paged archive */ } elseif (isset($_GET['paged']) && !empty($_GET['paged'])) { ?>
        <h3 class="pagetitle">Blog Archives</h3>
       <?php ?>

        <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
Appreciate any help on this please
