User Profile Url uses the username. Can that be changed?
Using bbP 2.3.2 on WP 3.6.
This may seem silly but isn’t using a user’s username (aka their login username) in their public profile url a reduction in security?
In any case, I want to see if there is any possibility to change that. the main reason is that for other reasons we have used people’s email addresses as the usernames when creating accounts. This made some sense at the time but provides an issue where now that we have added bbPress, people’s profile url includes their email address. something most of them will probably not like, and is reduction in security and privacy.
Is there a way to make it something like http://www.sitename.com/users/firstname_lastname/ instead?
or is there any other ideas as how to solve this dilemma?
