#1966 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Custom urls to Profile

Don't know if there's already a ticket on this but it would be really nice if you could get a custom/user-friendly url to your profile. I've seen this implemented on several huge communities including Facebook.

1: Say my default profile url is ""

2: Then somewhere inside Profile I can check to see if "" is available as my custom profile url. If it's available I can register that url and its mine. If not I can try and register for a different url.

Technically I can then access my profile from 2 different url's. The original and the custom url. It's important that the custom url is being setup as a 301 redirect to the original url to avoid duplicate content issues with google ect.

  • Component set to Core
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This will work if your site is a social network, like Facebook, but if you're using BuddyPress to add social networking features to a website which is not a dedicated social network, this would not be wanted. Closing this as it's something that ought to be done in a plugin.
