author -> bbp_user

    @starejosel

    Is there a way to replace the contents of the author page (when one clicks on a user to see the profile) with the bbp_user page?

    To be precise–if a link directs me to …/?author=n, I want it to go to …/?bbp_user=n

    Thanks!

    Elsewhere someone told me:

    You could use htaccess and a RewriteRule for that.

    Can someone help me figure out what that means and how to do it?

    Thanks!

    I posted this request in several different forums–I did not realize that is not considered acceptable, and apologize.

    It turned out that the solution was to use the WP htaccess Control plugin and use it to install a custom .htcaccess file with a rewrite rule
    (using the pretty url’s generated by the permalinks):
    RewriteRule author/([^/]+)/?$ http://yourspecificwebsitename/forums/users/$1/ [R=301,L]
